If you want to know about some of the most talked-about instances of 2018 which are related to women’s rights and feminism this is a must-read article. (Do click on the hyperlinks in orange in the article to understand the background of the issue mentioned there) In this article, the author is reviewing the positive and negative instances of the year gone by and questions: Was2018 a turning point for women? The answer: Yes, it exposed what we’re up against. The main idea is that from the President’s Club to Christine Blasey Ford, it’s not been a great year. But there were glimmers of hope, such as in Ireland
The article starts by recounting the sad and horrific instances that show it’s not been a great one for women. We live in conservative times and that conservatism is woven into the left, too and this presents a grim picture. In addition to this, the author also talks about some of the good stuff too.
The article is concluded on a positive note by stating that there are so many great and good women out there who shine light into the darkness. So many. I raise a glass to you for 2019, and to #MeToo, and to a world in which we keep fighting for basic freedoms. Because we can win. We can beat the fundamentalists.
