Sorry Ana Tijoux, There's No Other Feminism

By Katie Bay

Chilean hip-hop artist Ana Tijoux recently called for 'another feminism', one specifically against capitalism.

But why would feminism be specifically against capitalism? Or, let's turn this around. Why would feminism be speicifically against socialism? It doesn't make sense, does it?

Some feminists are capitalists, others are socialists, and that's the way it is.

You can be both a feminist and a socialist, but you can't merge the two without excluding some women, and therefore diminishing feminism.

Feminism is for the empowerment of women, so women can have equal rights and choices as men in life. This is feminism. There is no other feminism, really.
