Untitled[edit]

While I think Candi Churchill added some good information to this article, I'm a bit unsure about some of the things she removed and hence have re-added them. The first was on Redstockings influence on No More Nice Girls, which I thought was important for historical context. Perhaps it belongs elsewhere in the article, but deleting it entirely was uncalled for. The second was the statement "The Redstockings were more influenced by Marxism than were other radical feminist groups". I've read some of Redstockings early writings, and that seems like an accurate statement to me. Even if Redstockings weren't strictly speaking Marxists or socialist feminists, they seemed to have a kind of "feminist materialist" perspective that is noticeably more influence by Marxism than would be the case with cultural feminism.

Writings -- anthology[edit]

The anthology omits a controversial report on Gloria Steinem's involvement with a liberal youth group that was later revealed to have been funded by the CIA. This publication created a lasting rift between members of Redstockings and feminists who were close to Steinem

Why would their not publishing a report disreputable to Steinem cause a rift with those close to her? If I am misreading this then it likely needs to be rewritten, cause I read good. --Qemist (talk) 00:53, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
