Why does feminism seem hellbent on self-destruction these days? Well, it's nothing new... Jo Freeman wrote about trashing in the feminist movement back in the 70s. Today, thanks to online culture, it's ever more visible and pernicious. Rather than bringing women in, too often they feel pushed out. Those who try to make a difference, who end up in leadership roles, who gain a voice in the mainstream are torn down; women who fail to meet standards of purity politics are smeared and ejected from the movement. How can we do better? How can we replace toxicity with productivity? How can we better engage when feeling attacked? And why is this all happening in the first place?   I spoke with MK Fain, founder of 4W, an American feminist online publication, and co-founder of Spinster, a feminist social media platform about the challenges she's faced in the feminist movement, both from enemies and "allies."    Follow Mary Kate's work at 4W, find her on Twitter @mkay_fain, join Spinster.xyz.   Further resources: Jo Freeman's "Trashing: The Dark Side of Sisterhood."

In this week's episode, Meghan Murphy and Laura McNally wonder who is the real Karen of the Ramble park debacle: Amy Cooper or Christian Cooper? Also, it turns out all Karens are not manager-calling, dog leash-policing yuppies.
