We've come a long way, baby. But we're not there yet. Writer Jessica Valenti's activist work is engaging a new, younger generation of feminists. Valenti started the blog Feministing in 2004 while she was working for the National Organization for Women (NOW) and noticed a divide between older and younger feminists. Valenti's published books explore the changing landscape of sexuality and feminism (Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters), as well as the same persistent norms we're still fighting (He's a Stud, She's a Slut...And 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know). We're excited to see where she goes from here.
