Feminists: Which is it?

January 23, 2009 | NeW Staff

Ms. Magazine has published a special Inauguration edition which is creating quite a stir.  The cover of this feminist magazine features Barack Obama as superman revealing a shirt that reads, “This is What a Feminist Looks Like.”  See below.

Throughout the presidential election season, feminists vented their frustrations and it appeared that Barack Obama would have an uneasy relationship with them.  Some feminists even formed a group called, Just Say No Deal, to oppose the supposed deal between the Democratic Party and Barack Obama.  He has continued to upset some feminist groups, for example, by not appointing an equal number of men and women to his cabinet.  Have the wounds healed?  Is Barack Obama a true feminist or are feminists trying to get on his good side?
