Manolo Blahnik Feminism: the Right to Choos

I call the new feminism Manolo Blahnik Feminism, which is a super-sexual, super-sexy, and super-confusing form of self-empowerment. Ariel Levy calls it "raunch culture" and I believe that it is going to blow up in American women's faces.

Fake it ‘Til You Make It
