A Libertarian feminist--Isn't that an oxymoron?

How the hell can you be a feminist and a Libertarian at the same time--like the women being interviewed by Reason magazine in this video? Isn't that an oxymoron or a contradiction in terms? Feminists are overwhelmingly statists and 'big government types." Feminists are always asking for special treatment and privileges from the government, which is completely anathema to everything Libertarians believe in; Libertarians believe in no special privileges or treatment to any group or individual, which is what this women is seemingly calling for?

You forget that Feminism was co-opted by the CIA. Wouldn't a government agency want you to push for Government Intervention? Not many people know this or believe its a conspiracy theory.

That would allow her to believe she's a Libertarian without the contradiction you mention.
