  Is Feminism a Dirty Word? Monday 23 September 2002  
In its early days 'feminism' was a buzz-word for switched-on young women aware of their rights. But can the same be said today?

Are today's young women proud to call themselves feminists? Or is the idea of 'the sisterhood' proving a turn-off to a younger generation who've grown used to the rewards of the first women's libbers.
Rachel Newsome, editor of Dazed and Confused and Tracy McVeigh from the Observer join Jenni Murray to discuss why, for some of today's young women, feminism has become a dirty word.
