The days of women merely fighting for equal opportunity have long since ceased. According to Christina Hoff Summers, the goal of at least some leading feminists now is to destroy all men.
Summers based this assertion on an article by Suzanna Danuta Walters from The Washington Post, ‘Why can’t we hate men?’ As Walters wrote:
So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.
Unsurprisingly, Walters is a professor of sociology and director of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern University, as well as the editor of the gender studies journal ‘Signs’.
