complex identities with multiple characteristics 0 wants us to understand how complex we are for you define yourself with race ethnicity gender sexuality 0 court system cannot see intersectionality because it writes itself not to the other things become invisible 0 can39t discriminate against race color sex She is a professor of law at UCLA examined and looked over the law and saw that it left out people treats one piece of a person why do people make assumptions of me and my customs I39m just a human being treat me like a human abuse of authority being a victim because she is a black women

employers only see one part of our self and focus on that 031915 Terms for next Exam suffrage involved both men and women once African American men got the right to vote men help men women felt betrayed declared race was not an issue for us Women 395 Movement 0 women suffragists to support women but it took out race racism embedded in the movement 0 around this time referred to the notion of

equality but they still felt that women should be in the home and a good mother civilquot womanhood Weren39t in disbelief want the right as an adult individual many believed in separate schools segregation lst Wave Feminism 1800 s 0 Wanted equality every way of men want equality to function as an individual not have the husband supervise everything pushing off the last group what didn39t go far enough women39s movement had a lot of problems over reproductive rights because of the womanhood thought about morality they said no birth control is absolutely tied to controlling my body they didn39t have the authority whatever I want I should order for myself class difference birth of queer feminism started to get into labor right 2nd Wave Feminism 0 Wanted liberation I want full liberation in the society we were an industrial based country required a bunch of working class America suburban areas developed before it was all about the city 0 lntersectionality why would intersectionality make the feminism movement better 04215 Questions to think about on the exam 1 what goals did 2nd wave have that differs to lst wave trying to understand what made up 2nd wave feminism what were they interested in 1 Why is it even though expands in many ways doesn39t do quite enough but when 2nd wave comes down and critique 3 what inspires these other movements to grow out of it take 2 groups of feminist and tell me what makes them distinguishable from each other Universal Womanhood aka Universal Feminism 0 what does this have to do with early white womanhood Universalone subject can speak for all one women experience life as women we share a particular title and discriminated against because we are women actually I can take for granted even though I was born a women can I now represent all women but you can39t because you don39t know me Readings S Roesch Wagner Pateman Intersectionality played a role in feminism early on with the recognition of class differences wealth disparities differential power and forms of oppression faced by married versus unmarried women wealth disparities limited if you could even work in certain jobs Control over one39s body marriageparenting equality equality within the marriage labor access and equality property rights and educational access Sexual and reproductive rights are argued but take a back seat The notions of quotuniversal womanhoodquot and quotsisterhoodquot emerged as a way for feminists to recognize their collective associations that link women as female sexed and gendered persons US stats are really bad about abuse and violence against women lst Wave 0 wanted reproductive rights wanted beyond what suffrage purposed want equality whatever the male has I want it C don39t want to be owned by a male I don39t want him making decisions for me I want control over my own body 0 didn39t question the system they lived in or patriarchal heteronormativity they wanted the to work outside the home and not feel inferior to men achieve equality in every way Before lst wave there was a lot of pressure on women to be a good mother and civil woman Mark if you work hard enough you will achieve the American Dream the human body should not be owned by other people you should be an independent contractor you and your employers should see yourself as your own source of labor and should be paid equal for it 2nd Wave Height of the movement occurred in 19605705 women39s liberation became a centralizing focus they wanted to separate from the equality of men they want to self define they want to show what they are capable of they wanted liberty Understand why they called it liberation 1 page reading on ilearn Political liberation for women centered around genderbased social civil and economic equality and quotbody politicsquot connected to quotsexual liberationquot which lead to the movement to be labeled a quotsexual revolutionquot it gets written up as a sexual revolution These women were all about getting out in public enjoying there body having sex in public with maybe more than 1 person seeing themselves as women priority over their own bodies The assertion of the frame quotpolitics of identityquot began to emerge with Women of Color feminisms frustration of being apart of 2nd wave retains this notion wo giving thought that heteronormativity was a natural thing Notions of liberation and freedom expanded even moreso and tensions between Westernquotwhitequot and Women of Color feminists begin to take shape and lead to fissures within US feminist movements fissure different groups form from 1 to end their own type of oppression Native American women and immigrant women began to question the structures of American nationalism as well as capitalism and their impacts on equality A lot of lesbian groups form What constituted 1 freedom as citizens 2 labor equalitypay equity 3 political representation 4 quotQuality of lifequot and quotMiseryquot indexes the government does surveys what is it like living in your neighborhood do you have a car or bus do you a local grocery crime rates and they calculate and measure it into the quality of life a great level of poverty struggle in

that will benefit the indigenous people as a whole to make visible the internalised the oppression to Native people and the dominant Western culture dismantling of sovereignty partially due to the depowering of women patriarchy colonialism disempowered women it is a political issue but people think it39s a women39s issue allocation create a census doss act says its ok to send census around the

never understand the connection they have with the land Garcia amp Anzaldua Chicanas believe feminist involves more than just gender experiences as male or female in the community social movement unique set of concerns from white women within our communities there is patriarchy no longer an exluriorer force a back up an extra we are in our own right upfront about the concerns patriarchy gets in the way to have full function in a movement African American and Black Feminism white women are part of the problem they need their own branch of feminism since they were so racist men and women should be able to coexist balance gender concerns women are very intellectual overlap of patriarchy we are well grounded but many also struggle to include queer people great influence of the church

saving 050715 Women of Color Feminism woc have always had to work so equal pay would be great but they wouldn t get equal pay to white women Fair pay was less important 1970 s than police brutality in

local and global broader movement anticapitalist capitalism has shown itself that it pays people a lesser amount than others 2nd Wave fighting for rights of particular women because it was only be aimed at certain type of women white women house maids wanted to be able to get job that they enjoy work outside the home reproductive rights want to get prescribed 0 Many women would say l have everything but I feel empty especially when the last child went to school all day and not have a personal identity problem of no name 0 doctors were prescribing liquor to get over depression then many women became violent with their children feminist mystique that females were born to me house wives 1st Wave WOC issues were not allowed to be apart of it white women considered them as savages can t

pretty much anyone who is involved knows thats exist Kinser we have this phenomenon feminism and she identified as young white women that doesn t fit into the western feminist groups needed less babysitters and reproductive rights than I need an equal wage need to pay my bills to keep the lights on working class feminism postfeminismpost colonialism once a movement has begun it s everything after that The critique of postfeminism developed a number of types of feminism that are not produced weak feminism and choice feminism dysfunctional feminism the post feminist eras many of the choices may seem like they making a choice about their life is that an effective choice is that person truly free liberated does it really change anything main critique people who are using a certain platform of feminism but they aren t doing anything to change the system or really benefitting anyone did not speak for a level of liberation Kinser said I cannot use own experience to suggest that society is free she recognized the privilege she had white Christian english speaking that makes it difficult to understand everyday oppression of other women unless all women are free then her experience cannot be used as a measure for how good things are for women in America you can go to college as part time you can learn things and better yourself but you can t pursue a career white collar labor lawyers medical it39s a hostile environment post feminist argument women can do it if they work harder they have rights women have learned to be dependent not ask for what we need nurturing so the reason we aren t getting equal rights is because we don t know how to ask what are kinser39s different forms of feminism that are really unaffected 2 ineffective and 1 effective why groups aren t politically powerful give a solution 1213 by Patricia Hill Collins definition of modern times for third wave 0 Belief that women are full human beings capable of participation and leadership in full range of human activities intellectual political social sexual spiritual and economic ask me to build the rest of it how could it be expanded to include WOC have to say racialracismgt it39s missing not saying that white males have authority over not only women but nonwhite men needs to focus on human rights equal rights to everyone not to focus on 1 group who or what has power over others why is this fitting to 3rd wave women are capable of suffrage and politics rights it includes leadership they are capable to be leaders to be intellectuals being wanting sexual rights started to touch on in 1st wave 2nd wave is what they called the sexual revolution idea of women wanting sexual liberation queer women were genetically defiant too much of male masculinityhormone I want to be the whole of myself I want to do things and make my own decisions 2nd wave not till the 3rd wave when queer feminism arises that sexualization is a lot more complex then the medical world was willing to accept or treat as normal Anzaldua america still thinks that there are only 2 ways of being that are normal other nonnormative categories makes it harder to get jobs get healthcarebenefits 051215 women of color feminisms how we arrived at third wave Amber Kinser we are still in took off in 1990 s its what kicks off millennium feminism combination of looking

uniqueness of different feminist groups what is it about woc that makes community representation more board 3rd wave questioned class structure people were making more 1960 s70 s 2nd wave wanted complete liberation wanted nobody telling them that they were a gendered person it was narrow narrowly define white womanhood no representation in the movement meant you had to have a specific type of
