Laurie Penny on the importance of feminist action

This is a good* article about the current complacency of the left in regards to women and the lack of anger and outrage on the part of feminists. It's a good read, and I definitely see PWBA as being an antidote!

*I say "good" instead of something better because it fails to take into account the barriers that many women face to the sort of action that Penny is advocating. Plus Penny is white, which as we know means she has probably the least nuanced view of what women face today.
