Feminism Out?

From the Washington Times:
Feminism may be dead: 72 percent of Americans say they're not 'feminists' 
It is likely disappointing news for old school bra-burners and Gloria Steinham-inspired activists. 
“Has feminist become a dirty word?”demands a new Economist/YouGov Poll released Wednesday.  
“Feminism is a mixed bag in the eyes of most Americans. Overall, 28 percent consider themselves to be feminists, 72 percent do not,” the findings report. 
Among women, 38 percent consider themselves feminists. And men do not appear to be very liberated these days either: 18 percent “accept the label” for themselves, the poll reports.
Reason enough to raise a glass.
