The original core of feminism is VERY extropic and was one of the most valuable fruits of the 18th Century Enlightenment. I'm always struck by the irony that the mother of modern feminism, Mary Wollstonecraft, was Mary Shelley's mom, and was as much an exemplar of Enlightenment rationalism as Franklin or Jefferson. These days, I find Camille Paglia to be a pretty good source of brain food, if for no other reason than that she levels devastating criticisms at Foucalt and the other compost-modernists with wit and style.
