Martha Stewart Is Not a Feminist

Say What? Call Martha Stewart Anything but a Feminist


"Do we really need to waste time saying, 'I’m a feminist'? I never thought about glass ceilings. I never thought about glass floors. I was thinking about how many pies can I come up with for my pies-and-tarts book. Those are all original ideas."

— In an interview with New York Times Sunday Magazine, Martha Stewart said she never was, is, or will be called a feminist. Whatever, Martha!

Hmmm, succeeding at all costs? Not such a great lesson. And certainly nothing new to men or women.

Not a fan of Ms Stewart's, but her determination to succeed is a really good example to women (minus that fraud thing, obviously).

I agree (and somewhat identify) with Martha.

I'm not really a big fan of Martha, in fact, I think she's quite boring. I do have to agree with her on this though. If you aim to succeed without hindering yourself with what society deems a woman's role, you will do great things. Worry about what you want to accomplish and not what you can't do.

I agree with the person above me agreeing with the person above me. Martha believes in being Martha, and nothing else. She's so freaking out there sometimes, but not because anyone tells her to be. You have to admire that.

^That's my definition of feminism.

I like what she is saying here (at least MY interpretation of what she is saying, anyway! ;) )....I think she is really saying that she is focused on succeeding, rather than thinking about "male" or "female" roles. She didn't allow herself to be held back by what were "traditional" roles.

I don't know any feminist who would call Martha one anyway.
