Do people tend to overlook the economic political influences associated with feminism?
Consider the millions and millions of dollars associated just with domestic violence for example. When police forces come to rely on government funding of that nature, they are certainly encourged to show there is a continuing problem, needing continued funding. It's much the same with with private organizations that raise millions. I was reading how a couple women were fired from one such organization after questioning the accuracy of what information was being realeased as well as where much of the money actually went. People here often focus on actions and how those benefit men or women, but I think often the economic influences of how benefits from policy decisions is overlooked. What do you think? Where else have you seen the ecnomics of gender issues come into play? CAustin - I agree it's in no way unique to feminism and I think the politics of ethenol is another great example. I know many who also argue that philisophically, not paying any attention to the economic politics of the issue. It just occured to me that people here rarely mention the influence that groups trying to raise or obtain money has on policies related to gender.

Politics: the allocation of resources. I trust the greed of the private sector over the deception of the government. Feminism has cost this country a pretty penny with all their initiatives. But what do they care, it's not their money.
