Christina Hoff Sommers claims that her freedom feminism is "libertarian." That's odd, writes Sharon Presley. Nowhere in her book does she say that. All she talks about are conservatives, including, in very approving terms, Phyllis Schlafly, who is about as anti-feminist as you can get and still be female. Sommers wants libertarians to align with conservative "feminists," including the ones that are busy trying to destroy reproductive freedom. Any so-called "freedom feminism" that includes Schlafly and the anti-choice wing of the conservative movement is not any "feminism" Presley wants to be part of.
