Date: Thu, 9 Oct 1997 12:04:34 -0500 From: Dan Goodman Subject: womanist and feminist Beth Simon says "womanist" and "feminist" are not synonyms. I would like to know what the distinction is, and where/how "womanist" originated. Working from the meanings of "woman" and "feminine," I can come up with a logical distinction. But I don't think "womanist applies to female human beings, feminist to females of all species" is what Beth had in mind.
