Stereotyping feminism

Two contrasting examples, one using the broadest of brushes and the other dissecting stereotypes instead.

Firstly, one of the run-of-the-mill “raunch culture is all the fault of feminists who talked up the sexual revolution” op-eds that are becoming soooo familiar:Feminism’s legacy: YouTube catfights

Secondly, an op-ed about Muslim feminists in Turkey who prefer to wear the veil, and how that challenges the laws dating back to Ataturk banning the wearing of headscarves at university, in Parliament or by employees of the public service: The veils that cover up a strong feminist streak.
