I like reading these types of articles, solely for the fact to see what the latest buzzwords and reinterpretations of history in feminism are.

There are those that can not get on with educated women no matter what they have to say.
It's sad that women can-not walk the streets without fear.
That Indian ordeal beggers belief, that has no place at all in any society, and i hope the Indian authorities really get on top of this, and commit to exacting laws that will set an example, that will forever, put a stop to these sort of atrocities.

"Thus it is very easy to fall into the neo-colonial trap of inferiorising nation-states like India conveniently forgetting that its present economic Spring occurs after decades of recovery from a colonisation that impoverished and ravaged it to say the least."

Yes, naturally, the present economic and social conditions in India (or any developing country) are all the fault of "The Former Colonial Power".

Aristocrat,

My favourite is "inferiorising", although I don't think it's femino-speak, it seems more like anti-Orientalism jargon.

'The Occupy movement too, owes its albeit brief success to social networking. '

I suspect that the ”ccupy' movement to, have their share of rapist. Most of them with no idea at what they are protesting about. Strange to see them with their iphones etc. Look at the case with the Wikileaks founder. I hope the movement in India has a few more scruples and a bit more morality that the hypocrites in the occupy movement.

Mac, the buzzword I find intriguing is "privilege". Intriguing because I find it hard to fathom someone who has studied/trained for 3-4 years earning a degree or trade, then worked 40-60 hours per week for 10-40 years in order to live their life, is "privileged". It's as if the feminists think a house, car, holidays, etc. just fall into people's laps.
