6. The author, Bridget Murray Law, reports about the current state of feminism in the world today. The article provides the different meanings feminists give to feminism and the future they see in the movement. She also looks at the challenges in her report as well whether the movement needs a redefinition and tries to see the link between feminism and psychology. The author also reports several practical examples in society to show the growth or regression in the issue. Today, feminism is perceived differently by different people. Some people view it as a movement to hate men while others embrace its essential virtues. The article gave me an array of what self-proclaimed feminists believe they are fighting for. Although this report is from 2004, a lot that is presented in it mirrors the movement as it is 2020. I will use the information on this article to derive my meaning of feminism. Also, the information will be used to provide an analysis of what other professionals think and believe it to give my issue a proper literature review across the board. 7. This newspaper article gives insight on women's suffrage, which is the right of women to vote in an election, which was advocated for in the mid-19 th century by women for broad-based economic and political equality and social reforms. The author is a culture reporter for the New York Times covering intellectual life and the world of ideas. The article is time-sensitive and focuses on the events that led to the 19 th Amendment. The author conclusively describes what the movement was then and the kind of excitement it generates today. The article includes reasons as to why the struggle that was started many years ago is not yet over and might not be over soon. The article even presents images of the women at the forefront of this movement as well as some images of the struggle. I find this article to be very biased as it provides a one-sided view of the feminist movement. It focuses more on what the movement has done which is very little compared to what it should have done or what it was intended to do. I will use this information as a naysayer in my issue to provide a different idea from what I am bringing forth to show that my beliefs are open for criticism. The article will also provide me with a historical perspective on feminism to see how far back it dates and the journey it has undergone since.
8. The book, which is edited by Mallory Farrugia, is a star-studded roster of iconic women who write powerfully about what it means to be a feminist yesterday, today, and tomorrow and was published in 2019. These poets, essayists, activists, actors, and professors address topics ranging from workplace harassment to resting bitch face. The results are by turns refreshing, provocative, moving, and hilarious. A diverse chorus of intersectional voices and a forward-looking stance set this book apart, and its vibrant, textured package makes it a beautiful gift. It's the smart, covetable anthology that women of all ages will turn to for support and inspiration in the ongoing fight for gender equality.
