Feminism has a lot of PR problems. Millions of people around the world actually believe men should be the heads of families and companies, women are designed to be their help-mates. The beliefs that women are better parents than men and men are better bosses than women are pervasive, to say nothing of the belief that the sole purpose of a women’s sexuality is to be a receptacle for male genitalia. Famous people who obviously are in support of a woman’s right to be whatever she wants to be hesitate to call themselves a “feminist” because of negative connotations of the word.
