Like an older relative, old-style feminism putatively gazes on a younger generation and disapproves of their love of Madonna, their addiction to soaps, or their enthusiasm for high fashion-the ‘women who dare to dress up’(Young, 1988, p. 179). In another context, Janice Winship notes that her students’ reluctance to identify themselves as feminist ‘seemed to me to be not just a sign of an as-yet-unformed feminist consciousness but a sign that the style of seventies feminism felt inappropriate to them’ (Winship, 1985, p. 44).
