I'm very pleased that Joan Acker and Hester Eisenstein have responded to my article. Since the questions that they raise overlap, I will address their responses together. I think that the questions they have raised are important for a discussion not only of the current state of the women's movement, but more broadly, of the current state of progressive politics in the United States. I want to thank them for having taken the discussion that I started further.
