Feminism, Fear, and the Strongman: Women and the New Progressive Agenda

March 16, 2017
Read the new article in the Huffington Post by Riane Eisler, president of the Center for Partnership Studies, and Valerie Young, Outreach director for CPS’s Caring Economy Campaign: Feminism, Fear, and the Strongman: Women and the New Progressive Agenda.

If the momentum unleashed by women taking up the call to action is to have lasting impact, it must drive a progressive agenda that will reverse the current regression toward misogyny, scapegoating, and “strongman” rule in both the family and state. This requires long term, focused work – and an understanding of how and why the struggle over gender norms is a major factor behind the current US political and cultural regression.

We must do the long-term planning needed to reclaim family, values and morality from those who hijacked feminism, dug in on authoritarian families, and elevated violence over shared prosperity, equity, and peace.
We must show that gender equity is not only moral but key to a healthy economy and society.
