Far from being in a "post-feminist" age we've seen recently a resurgence of feminist campaigning among women (and some men). There's a new brand of feminism: young, social-media savvy, militant. But there's a new kind of backlash, driven by so-called fundamentalists and by increasingly overt misogyny.
