"At issue is a profound difference in seeing feminism as intersectional and global rather than essentialist and insular. Women have grappled with these questions in every feminist wave, struggling to see feminism as something other than a "me too" bid for power whether it be in the family, the party, the race or the state."

--Eve Ensler and Kimberle Crenshaw on some feminists' calls to support Hillary Clinton to advance women's equality

Funny this is from Eve Ensler, although it makes sense coming from Crenshaw. Ensler is the epitome of "me too" politics if I ever met one.
