Oprah and the v word

In the US, 50 million eligible women didn’t vote in the 2000 election.

Oprah Winfrey, using her hugely successful television show reminded American women why in this election they can’t afford to be so complacent.

"Take your rights for granted at your peril, ladies. Move, or else. Choose how you want the laws to treat and respect you and your body – or someone else, someone who hasn’t touched a vagina for 30 years and who thinks sex is only tolerable in the dark, fully clothed and with a respectable prostitute, will choose for you."

I, for one, applaud Oprah’s neofeminism.
