Has feminism gone too far? Mary Harrington, a UK writer, contributing editor at UnHerd, and author of Feminism Against Progress, thinks so. In fact, she thinks we need to go back — way back. Modern technologies, cosmetic surgeries that chase youth eternally, and interventions like the pill have not offered women freedom or empowerment, leading us to wonder if things should have stopped with the first wave. Certainly, Mary believes we should be moving in an entirely different direction.
I spoke with Mary in early March about her anti-futuristic vision of the future.
