STFU, Conservatives
The most profound betrayal of feminist issues has been the lack of mass-based feminist protest challenging the government’s assault on single mothers and the dismantling of the welfare system. Privileged women, many of whom call themselves feminists, have simply turned away from the “feminization of poverty.”

During the 1990s, Bill Clinton bragged about “ending welfare as we know it”, triggering a spike in dire poverty and homelessness, among single mothers in particular. Clinton also exploded the prison population with mandatory minimums and prison privatization, beginning the ongoing trend of mass incarcerating women, including application of the death penalty. Many liberals, including feminists, applauded these “centrist” measures at the time and have continued to remain silent on their devastating impact.
