Roundup: Feminism Old, New, and Right Now

Three quick hits before I dash off to a Girls Write Now meeting tonight:

Camille Paglia sounds off on "the sisterhood myth" over at The Guardian, while six leading feminists sound off on the books that changed their lives.

Molly Bennett interviews feministing.com's Jessica Valenti in The Nation.

And last weekend Smith College celebrated the 65th anniversary of its renowned Sophia Smith Collection with history, art, feminism and the vivid voices of women across decades. Headlining the festivities was "Voices of Feminism Oral History Project," a four-year initiative highlighting the stories of women overlooked by the longstanding notion of feminism as a white, middle class movement. Happy anniversary, archives!
