Wow! I wanted to highlight so many sentences here, because your essay has so much truth. I say this as someone who has always been skeptical of feminism, primarily because, like all “-isms”, I see it as primarily a call to selfishness and a celebration of revenge.

Yours is a feminism I can believe in, because it demands the best of woman, and acknowledges that there are indeed good men to be found.
