The rhetorical dilemmas of feminism, #MeToo, and autonomy with Mary Jo MacDonald


For today’s chat, I speak with Mary Jo about some fascinating rhetorical issues in feminism: is it actually more feminist to admit truth to stereotypical women’s vices? Is it okay to converge with conservatives on women’s issues sometimes? Why have the same debates been happening for centuries? What’s the deal with modern academic feminism? Mary Jo has intriguing thoughts on this, and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
