Feminism; a Word That Should Not be Scary

by Sarah_B on December 7, 2017 - 10:28am

This paper demonstrates how feminism is not what a majority of people think. It gives the real and unique definition of the feminist movement and its history. Feminism did not appear out of nowhere and has a unique goal; equality. In this research paper, there are real statistics and proof on how woman are perceived less than man. There are sections about the influence that society has on the youth, the arranged marriage, the economic wage difference between a man and a woman for the same job, the rape culture and the need of men in the movement. It also brings a fresh idea on how important the movement is in today’s society by pointing out events that happened recently here, in Canada, and all around the world. By reading this paper, you will realise whether you are a sexist or a feminist and how being an “equalist” is the same as being a feminist.

Your term paper seems super interesting and like it approaches feminism in a realistic and just way. If I could make one suggestion, it would be that, while it is interesting to see such a broad range of issues, you may not have been able to go into the appropriate depth necessary for all the the topics you covered in the abstract. To continue fighting for this, I hope that you keep talking about this issue and don’t let fear get in the way of campaigning this great cause.

Obviously, I can’t see the entirety of your term paper but I quite like the topic and the view you had on it. My question is do you think if we restore home economics classes that it will break this stereotype of “This is a woman’s job, this is a man’s job”? Household tasks are usually quite stereo-typically divided and I believe if we reintroduce home economics into secondary school for teenagers ages 12 to 17, and have them do both stereo-typically male household jobs and stereo-typically female household jobs, they will learn that both sides have difficulties and improve on the stigma that is one job is harder than the other.

It's a very nice research you have done here! I think it is overwhelmingly important that all people, mindless of gender, become feminists, for we should strive for equality of genders. My only recommendation would be perhaps to look at the situation of women around the world, such as in Saudi Arabia. Otherwise, great work, very well presented in front of the class and amazing overall!!! I hope you keep getting involved in organizations which seek equality of men and women!!!
