Women’s final!Last discussion group! 1) Readings 2) Reflection on course 3) Q & A on study sheet 4) Evaluation This week the readings were about how feminism fits into their lives. Cohen’s interview: black people with AIDS- gayness with whiteness? – intersectionality with sexual orientation is a good example of POLITICAL INTERSECTIONALITY….dehumanization of men on the “down low.” Don’t consider themselves gay, HIV comes up because of that way. Dehumanization-down low is just a black thing, Craig (senator in bathroom) never described as down low. Homophobia? Republican hypocrisy? Intersectionality=race, gender, AND sexuality and what is not getting talked about? Newborne article: the little things that you should stand up to as a feminist. Sisterhood is dead? Lecture 12/3- scared to be called feminist? Debate on the feminist “crazy” portrayal. Are things fine right now? Are women and men supposedly equal? Bell Hooks’ definition- feminism, men should take the label! Can men have sexism in life? YES! Nature of oppression idea. Overall equality, any one can support it! How feminism fit into their lives: Kimmel- source of community, comfort, unity, understanding each other etc. community is something that you create yourself. Not just fall into “like good weather”. He was “urging” men that by fighting for women’s equality wouldn’t take away from their lives and actually enrich it. Chivalry? Appeasement for other things women go through- implies they are incapable? Heteronormativity. Gestures, men walk down isle? Man give away. Take pleasure from vs. think about what is problematic. Don’t get mad at a guy for opening door-where does Feminism fit in your real life? What would be the point of not shaving legs or whatever, that’s not where the oppression happens- much bigger thing.

What students are saying

    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.
