Congratulations to Elisheva Perlman on her amazing MRKT event (“Elisheva Perlman Brings the MRKT to Women,” February 22, 2018) that sends the “powerful message for our daughters: You can maintain your values and live a balanced life while pursuing a career you love.” Her only mistake is saying, “This is not about women’s lib or feminism—in fact, it’s the opposite.” Perlman has that backwards. Allowing women to maintain their values, live a balanced life and pursue a career they love is feminism. In fact, it is one of the best definitions of feminism I’ve seen in a long time.
