I was reading a week-old issue of The New Yorker last night, and saw a profile on Elisabeth Badinter, a French feminist and one of the country’s leading intellectuals. I thought it was a fascinating read. The article covers her life, her marriage and children, and the work she has done and the controversy she has raised, both in France and abroad. If you have a subscription to The New Yorker, you can read the article here.
I must admit, I am not familiar with Elisabeth Badinter, or French feminism in general, and thought I would ask the NeW reading public if they are. What are your thoughts, on both her and her ideas?
