  1. Hooray!!! I'm so glad you posted this. I think the article does a wonderful job explaining what the dominator model and partnership model are. She is able to articulate these fundamentals in a down to earth basic format.

    I've often thought that when articles about heavy topics which require base knowledge is a myriad of fields are written they tend to lean toward the academic side. The problem with this, is they loose average folks (you know what I mean here) because of all the verbage. It's like they're lecturing to their peers and not the average person. In order for folks to get a better understanding, issues need to be presented in ways that cover the grey, but are relatable and understandable.

    Anyway, this article is a great start for those unfamiliar with feminism (or have a obscure idea of what feminism is). I think having a basic understanding in what she presents is a must for EVERYONE. .
