    A spoonful of careful definition helps the medicine of research go down.

    Though I'm not sure my source for that, Mary Poppins, qualifies as a philosopher. Maybe a feminist.

    contemporary feminists? is that what you are asking?

    gloria steinem, eve ensler, alice walker, naomi wolf, urvashi vaid

    or do you need to know an expression of feminism in current events?

    you can always look up 'third wave feminism', discuss how some modern women view sex more like men, maybe something like that

    Simone de Beauvoir. Existentialist logician, see link under Ayn Rand became a bloody poser. She wrote various me-me-me rants, yet she grabbed social secure practices while it became invented... even although she ranted at people who mandatory it. Rand is the bible for the a million%'s philosophy of selfishness. Calling her a logician is like calling Dick Cheney a diplomat.

    Luce Irigaray, I don't know if she's considered a feminist, but she writes about difference and gender through subjects like kissing, writing, seeing (films), and other stuff.
