Margaret Atwood said to a group on Facebook, “Tell me what you mean by that word [feminist] and then we can talk.” WMG producers of the radio show, “The Feminist Lens”  are frequently asked for a definition. Our definition always stresses the fact that feminists are not a monogamous group. We don’t always agree politically or culturally. There is a wide range of men and women who call themselves feminists.

Remember when that word was always pejorative? We recognize and respect the differences. Our definition has only one agreement: women’s right to control our bodies. We do not ask those whose religion or culture have commitments against contraception or abortions to abandon those commitments. We can work together on many women’s issues.

We emphasize women’s freedom, equality, and marginalization. We are against any attempts to block free speech, contraception, and abortion. WMG believes those policies issue death policies to women all over the world. These policies are pro-death, not pro-life. We at WMG come from religious, cultural, and educational backgrounds that accept free speech, contraception, and abortion.
