Icons

Emily Wilding Davison, Emmeline Pankhurst, Christabel Pankhurst, George Elliot, Virginia Woolf, Golda Meir, Margaret Thatcher...
We can now add Destiny's child to that illustrious list. Why you ask! I should think it's obvious but i realise that the ability to connect dots is pretty rare so i'll lay it down for you: Destiny's child as an entity is an icon in the feminist movement. uh? Why, ofcourse: Destiny's child has embodied the completion of the feminist movement. Granted the completion is not cut and dried but the stage is set. Feminism has come full circle: Up until now feminism shunned, despised even, traditional female roles. There was an increase in delinquency because women even shirked the responsibility of child rearing! Infact many social ill can be traced to the intransigent movement: Some women even suffered because of it, the oppressiveness of the effort, of the infinite goals, of the burden of transcendency when there was always an easier option; life was robbed of its beauty and simplicity! And until recently, they've suffered in silence.

But thanks to exception women like Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Laura Bush ... Feminism has been rescued from killjoy overachievers. We can now celebrate traditional feminity without being shunned for it: Just because some women died in the struggle to escape the positions traditionally apportioned to women doesn't mean we owe them anything; it doesn't mean we should renounce those alternatives: one woman's prison is another's field of gold. The fact that the civil rights movement was half completed doesn't in any oblige black people to choose to embrace their rights! The freedom to choose excludes no option: One has the liberty to choose servitude if they so desire. But i've digressed, a whole lot.

The emancipation of the feminist movement would have been incomplete but for the splendid expression of the ladies of Destiny's Child. Not only have they symbolized the evolution and fullfillment of the movement - From Independent Women to Cater 2 u - they've also given voiced to long suppressed women who only desired t0 take Off their men's Shoes, Untie their Shoestrings, take Off their Cufflinks, and altogether Serve them. Women whose lives Would Be Purposeless Without their men. Every crusade needs its values articulated, and embodied. And i'd say These young ladies have done great!
