Definitions

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 3 months ago

 On the first day of class, I asked you to define feminism. Here are a few defintions to compare yours to:

 

Oxford Concise Dictionary of Politics:

Feminism is a way of looking at the world which women occupy from the perspective of women. It has as its central focus the concept of patriarchy which can be described as a system of male authority which oppresses women through its social, political, and economic institutions.

 

Chambers Dictionary:

Advocacy of women's rights or of the movements for the advancement of emancipation of women.

 

Rebecca West:

People call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.

 

A political interpretation of the condition of being a woman and it urges the recognition of that condition as the basis for political identity.

 

A movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.
