Blog Post #14 Feminist geographies!

Feminism hasn't sold out even if it's being used as a marketing tool

Blog post 2: In this post we got to develop our thinking about Feminism more. The belief in political, social, and economic equality of the sexes. I have developed my thinking through the beginnning of this post that feminism is about all genders having equal rights and opportunities. It’s about respecting diverse women’s experiences, identities, knowledge and strengths, and striving to empower all women to realise their full rights. It’s about levelling the playing field between genders, and ensuring that diverse women and girls have the same opportunities in life available to boys and men. The book “Feminism is for everybody” helped me to consider these ideas and get different aspects of it. 

Blog post 6: This post helped me to connect Feminism in a very different way by understanding the event of 1964 civil rights act and the National organization of women. By the interview with Ms. Janice Li, one of my work’s supervisor’s mother; I developed my thinking on what is‘Feminism’ in general. The movement along to end discrimination basis on sex. This is how it’s reflecting my Blog post #2 concept of understanding Feminism, striving to empower women. The story Riot grrl and grassroots activism (third wave agenda) follow through my concept of oral history.

Blog post 12: By this post I learned one kind of feminism called ‘Materialist Feminism’ and its importance. The feminist work in the late 1960s which I shared an example in my Blog post #6( civil rights act). I learned that Materialist feminism attempts to focus specifically on social arrangements that emphasize the role of women most notably the family, domesticity, and motherhood but bring to its analysis an attention to the gendering discourses which promote women’s marginalization.
