From the NYT:
David Snow, professor of sociology at the University of California, Irvine, noted that the top priorities of the specific movements associated with individualization - "the feminist movement, lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender movements, the black power movement, the disability rights movement, and, most recently, the fat-acceptance movement" - do not lend themselves to broad economic demands on behalf of the less well off.
