About



Deb Powers is the filling in a generational sandwich. At 49, I am five years shy of being midway between my mother and my daughter. My mother never called herself a feminist, but she taught me what one looks and acts like. My daughter has always considered herself a feminist, and I’ve learned from her as well. I’m tired of hearing that the generations are at war, that younger feminists don’t appreciate the struggles and sacrifices of “those who went before” and that older feminists are too narrow and focused on winning battles that are over. I believe we have more that brings us together than that drives us apart, and I think we need to start talking about our common grounds and building on them.
