I think we've come to a point that you can be a woman, wear high heels and pink suits, and still be an equal to any guy. You don't have to be a manly woman to be taken seriously anymore.

As far as the Iowa caucuses are concerned, I don't think it was a sign of the end of feminism as much as it was a vote of confidence for a younger generation of leaders. Although Obama is technically a Boomer, he's really a trailing edge boomer. Trailers are more Gen X than Boomer, because they also don't remember a time when the country seemed to be going in the right direction. Where were they when Kennedy got shot? In Kindergarten.

There was an interesting essay in the Atlantic that discusses Obama's appeal to younger voters:
