Amanda Marcotte at Pandagon says that "Southern women are already feminists, they just don't know it yet." Check out her post on Loretta Lynn and finding the heart of the South:
There's a movement right now to get arrogant, misogynist Southern Baptists into pharmacy jobs where they can deny women their right to birth control. On a national level, this can be fought politically, debating and disputing the idea that one has a specific right to enforce anti-woman religious beliefs on customers. But the real battle is cultural, a battle to get women to realize they have a right to their damn drugs so that never can the pills be denied without a woman raising holy hell over it. And that energy is there. I believe it because I am a Southern woman who raises hell and listens to Loretta Lynn raising hell.
