“THE strategic silences of feminism are having profound effects on society. For all the brilliant choices ushered in for women – the freedom to forge ahead with careers, to stay single, if that was their wish, not to be tied down by family and babies, if that was their choice – feminism failed women by refusing to inform them that their new-found choices came at a price.”
