UNIT 10 – FEMINISM THE BASICS - Feminist IR, at its core, offers a critique of the exclusion and misrepresentation of women and gender from the discipline of IR and its object of study. - Feminist IR theories are constitutive, interdisciplinary theories and the only ones within the field of IR that consistently prioritize the study of women and/or engage in significant debates over the meaning of gender. - Barbara Smith: “Feminism is the political theory and practice that struggles to free all women: women of colour, working-class women, poor women, disabled women, lesbians, old women, as well as white, economically privileged heterosexual women.” - Feminism: Aiming to eliminate the global subordination of women economically, politically, physically, and socially. o Debate and tension between different feminist schools of thought, particularly when applied to global sphere. o “Intersectionality”: How do interlocking systems of power impact the o marginalized and subordinated? o “Contemporary feminism is not only embarrassing but incredibly misguided to the point where I can’t associate myself with it.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
