Donatella Versace Gives Into Tired Stereotype That ‘Feminism Is Dead’

I guess we can all go home then. Amy, let’s find jobs in insurance sales because apparently the women’s liberation movement never amounted to anything.
We may have seen the rise of women as well as an increase in working females, but that doesn’t mean we’re looking out for each other, according to fashion designer Donatella Versace, who shared her bleak view on feminism with The Telegraph:
“Feminism is dead in the world. It comes from another time. I’m a feminist. I want to fight, but I don’t see many people with this desire to fight for something. Women don’t help each other, especially in fashion. I know Miuccia [Prada]…but that’s it. Nobody else.”
Women really don’t care to prove themselves? You’re not looking hard enough. We’re all familiar with the notion that females are catty and nasty to each other in competitive environments, but can’t we focus on the women who have helped each other get ahead? It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s not unheard of, and Versace should show at least a little more creativity than make a blanket statement about female aggression.
