    2,745 words
    Is Feminism Dead What is feminism There are many different interpretations of the word "feminism". However, most people agree that feminism is the theory that men and women should be equal politically, economically and socially.

Feminism, as it was first known, has almost died out completely. Feminist groups today are integrating many more issues into femini...
  • Modern Feminists
    529 words
    Thoughts on Feminists. I was not yet ten when I was first made aware of the feminist movement and my mother didnt have much use for that type of thing. You see, feminism in the eighties was a female version of the neo-nazi skinhead mentality. With men being the enemy instead of other races. In this movement, even to tolerate men was blasphemy, and to be attractive was considered weakness. This movement is no longer the norm, but it isnt gone either. While earlier feminists were: male bashing, le...

    2,482 words
    The Australian Legend And Feminism Until recent years it has been believed that there are two sexes, being male and female, and with these there are two genders, with these being masculinity and femineity.

With the introduction...

    E.L. Doctorow's Ragtime and the Rise of Women's Liberation One of the central themes of E.L. Doctorow's novel Ragtime is the transformation of the leading female character of the novel from stereotypical repressed Victorian women into liberated and even feminist heroines.

This was an heroic period in the women's movement, and the newspapers and boo...
  • Chicana Feminists
    503 words
    Women of color who shared feminist goals faced dual obstacles, from their own communities and from women's movements. Black nationalists, for example, urged women to align with racial rather than sexual politics, primarily by supporting men through women's roles as wives and mothers. Asian American feminists were criticized as traitors to their race for threatening ethnic identity, just as Chicana feminists risked being labeled vend idas, or sellouts, in the Chicano movement (Chicana Feminism). ...
  • Author Ridicules The Feminist Movement
    647 words
    The World According to Garp by John Irving In the novel The World According to Garp, by John Irving, feminism is both glorified and ridiculed. This is shown through the life of T.S. Garp and his family. When the author refers to Garp's mother Jenny, feminism is shown as a great thing that is totally for the benefit of women and all mankind. However, there are just as many times when the author shows how feminism led to people doing stupid things and acting as extremists, as in the case of the "E...
  • Most Positive Reaction A Feminist Theory Writer
    1,608 words
    Criticism. The word just looks scary, and it's something most people are a little afraid to receive. However, I am afraid to give criticism. As the only male Women's Studies major on this campus, and the only male student who wants to learn about Feminist Theory, I ve learned very quickly to know my role. This course has served as a wake-up call to me that I am an outsider in the feminist movement and that this movement is not my movement. So for me to criticize a movement that I m deeply involv...
  • Varying Groups Within The Women's Movement
    2,669 words
    With the emergence of the Women's Movement, a deep cleavage was created in gender relations, seemingly pitting women against men in the struggle for equality and status. An effect of this separation in spheres, was a collective of men feeling as if they were being misrepresented, or left behind during a revolutionary period of changing gender relations. A product of this was the conception of men's groups around the world. This paper attempts to look at the development of the men's movement in C...
  • April Conference In Washington For Young Feminists
    3,954 words
    At Feminist Majority headquarters in Arlington, Va., security cameras monitor the entrance for anti-abortion protesters. Posters celebrate efforts to elect more women to political office. The library stocks Off Our Backs, Skirt! and other feminist journals. And the mail-order service offers such products as T-shirts that proclaim "Feminism is the radical notion that women are people". At the Independent Women's Forum, just five blocks away on the same street of this Washington suburb, the ambien...
  • Feminist Movement
    534 words
    "Would you describe yourself a feminist?" I was recently asked. Yes, was my knee-jerk reaction to the above question. I am a FEMINIST (in caps, no less.) I went to an all-women's college, I support reproductive rights and signed petitions to protect Roe vs. Wade as the decision approached its 30th anniversary, I believe that women deserve respect, that women's lives have value independent of men, that equal pay for equal work is a given. I've read Gloria Steinem, Aud re Lorde and Andrea Dworkin....
