Declaration of Sentiments

This article highlights all of the struggles that women have faced over time because of gender inequality. While women have come a very far way from back then, there is still much to be done in order to obtain the equality that women are still striving for. A very important statement that should be added […]

Book of the City of Ladies

“The Book of the City of Ladies” by Christine de Pizan is an amazing work that starts off with the author being visited by three women who represent Reason, Justice, and Rectitude. From here, Pizan is told to build a city filled with accomplished women. Pizan originally has very stereotypical thoughts about women, however, these thoughts are […]

Thomas More’s “Utopia”

We started off the semester by discussing the differences between utopias and dystopias. Because of this, Thomas More’s “Utopia” was an essential read because he created the term that refers to a perfect place. In “Utopia”, More creates a fantasy world that he envisions as perfect, however, it is far from it. While he tries […]

I can’t say I can agree with her views however as she completely hates the entirety of the male sex. She comes across as if she was joking […]

We decided to ask multiple people on their perspectives about this topic. Many of these people were of different genders or ages. […]

Oppression

Marilyn Frye’s “Oppression” explores the meaning of the word oppression and how it applies differently to men and women. I found the fact that she mentioned that while both men and women are oppressed, women are oppressed because of their gender while men are not. This reminded me of the “black lives matter” movement vs […]

SCUM MANIFESTO

Valerie Solanas’ SCUM manifesto was quite frankly disturbing, however, considering her life I can sort of see where she is coming from. Her description of the whole thing was way more gory and violent than it needed to be but definitely got her point across.. to say the least. Her perspective was completely different than […]
