Intro to Women and Gender Studies Ashley Fishwick Notes 1/14 Ideological modes of thought: beliefs, dominant ideas ex. the American Dream is ideology in America a belief system that a large group of people believe in despite the merit behind it much more than an idea Patriarchy: where men are dominant Feminism: social, economic, political equality for citizens regardless of gender, sexual orientation, etc. academically, look at things in terms of hierarchy cultural thought process Contemporary Imperialism: authoritative thought Globalization: the spread of thoughts and ideas internationally integrated not just thoughts and ideas, ex. Internet also economic Objectification: taking away personal qualities, making someone into more of an object Androcentric: normalize a male logic system ex. media system: majority is for a male audience yet the male audience is not the dominant demographic Liberal Feminism: believe we don’t need to change our system, we only need to tweak our system; believe in shared power Radical Feminism: intent is to get at the root of the problem, not just to fix it at the surface; want equal numbers, not just a small amount of shared power Lesbian Baiting: when feminists are accused of being lesbian in an effort to discredit Transnational Feminism: across borders; doesn’t just consider what’s best for women in one space Post Feminism: the idea we are supposed to believe we have achieved equality encouraged to confuse liberation with the freedom to choose from a limited number of products (book pg.2021) purchasing power is not the same thing as social justice ex. Sex and the City is a post feminism product Women and Gender Studies came about in the 60s and 70s the integration has two outcomes o rebalanced curriculum: women as subjects of study; com into modes of thought o point out holes in the curriculum Waves of Feminism(look at notes on blackboard for further information) 1st Wave: political personhood as a woman o starts with abolition of slavery o 1848 Seneca Falls Convention 1st women’s convention o Mott and Stanton 1st western world feminists 2nd Wave: modes of thought in the 60s and 70s o a lack of identity fueled this wave for political, economic, and medical justice Intro to Women and Gender Studies Ashley Fishwick Notes 1/14 o the problem that has no name= the lack of identity 3rd Wave: intersectionality; criticized 2nd wave feminism for lack of diversity o there were women of color involved in 2nd wave feminism you just don’t hear about them o interrupting idea of “sameness” o modernism: there is a truth o postmodernism: there is no one simple truth; interrupted “sameness”
