MCA's Feminist Legacy

Getting annoyed by some of the comments on the GoldieBlox/Beastie Boys main page article and wanted to share a piece Jessica Valenti wrote after the death of Adam Yauch about their, as she put it, feminist turnaround.

If we are going to hold the Beasties accountable for their shitty lyrics (that is almost 30 years old, they openly regret, have apologized for, and don't play), lets also remember their fucking rad lyrics and actions.

To all the mothers and sisters and the wives and friends / I want to offer my love and respect till the end


And I don't know, Kathleen Hanna being married to Ad-Rock gives him some feminist cred, no?
