Naomi Wolf: feminist campaigners ‘should be prepared for abuse’

This is the article I passed around in class about Naomi Wolf’s response to the Twitter abuse Caroline Criado-Perez received in her campaign to put a woman on an English note of currency.  Below is Criado-Perez’s response written for the Guardian.  A very interesting dialogue!

Her final paragraph speaks strongly to an aspect of feminism we haven’t fully explored.  I’d be interested to hear people’s thoughts.
