TIME apologizes for including 'feminist' in worst words poll

The Feminist Majority reported today that TIME Magazine has apologized for putting the word "feminist" on its list of words to ban in 2015.

"At last, TIME comes to its senses. Obviously 'feminist' is a worldwide movement for equality of women that cannot and must not be trivialized. Too many women's lives depend on it. It's very important that leaders from every walk of life, not only declare they are feminist, but help to empower women and to end the violence against and exploitation of women," said Feminist Majority Foundation President Eleanor Smeal.
