propose rewriting lede's 2d paragraph
The lede's second paragraph merely restates difference feminism generally, much as the first paragraph does, when it should distinguish itself from other forms of difference feminism. As I read the article (I haven't read sources for this and I'm not expert in this movement), because the modern (not historical) form is largely supported by the Roman Catholic Church, the major distinction is that it reinforces the role of women as mothers, because it accepts the Church's position that women have no right to choose whether to be mothers or not, and it views the differences as primarily biologically, not primarily culturally, driven. I propose to add to the lede, probably editing the second paragraph to the following:
New feminism, as a form of difference feminism, supports the idea that men and women have different strengths, perspectives, and roles, while advocating for the equal worth and dignity of both sexes. Among its basic concepts are that the most important differences are those that are biological rather than cultural, and that women's obligation is to give birth to and raise children, and therefore that reproductive choice must be opposed.
Neutral Point of View?
The article reads as if it was written by a fervent supporter of New Feminism. The principles of the movement should be presented more succinctly and precisely in less grandiose and rhetorical language.
Yeah, if a woman is obedient to and dependent on a man, THAT IS NOT EQUALIY IN ANY WAY! There does NOT have to be "one leader", do these people think we're still living in an absolute monarchy? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:10, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
