12. Right, I don't believe it was a conspiracy.

 

I think it was just a confluence of events that more women entered the marketplace at the same time that feminists insisted that women entering the marketplace was essential for their ultimate happiness.

It was very telling however that feminists did not focus on the economic factors driving women to enter the world of wage work.

As for the second point, the small isolate pockets of rad-fems were far more influential than their numbers would suggest--they completely infiltrated academia with an entirely new department, "women's studies," which no one had even thought of before 1975 or so.

The academic feminists quickly established themselves as high priests of the movement and ordinary grass-roots feminists need not apply--then came the inevitable slide into dogma and irrelevancy.
