    John Stuart Mill thought that women were caught in a “cult of domesticity”. He believed that women entering the workforce gradually would have immense benefits for society. For instance, if a position was needed in a town, wouldn’t it be best for the town to fill that position with the best person for it regardless of the person’s gender. He focused a lot on women in the workforce whereas Simone did not mention women working. For his time John Stuart Mill broke the mold of men of his time. He thought women being a greater influence and working would benefit both sexes. Virginia Woolf was very opinionated when it came to how women should be treated and their role in society. She was an outspoken advocate for feminism. Woolf was an English writer and was a modernist in the twentieth century. Much like De Seaviour she believed that women needed to become independent from men and marriage to be successful. But she thought that women could become powerful only by achieving financial and psychological independence from men. She also argued that equal opportunity for education and economic advantage was even more important than the right to vote. A major difference between Virginia Woolf and Simone De Seaviour was how Simone tried to please both sexes and Woolf was about fighting for women. Woolf believed it was owed. One example of how outspoken Woolf was is when she wrote “A Room of One’s own”. This was written in response to a clergyman who believed that there was no woman that…

    can consider her perspective on the topic, which I also primarily agree with. In the article she explains how “plenty of colleges and numerous universities force-feed young adult men radical feminist nonsense, sexual and domestic violence, ‘body shaming’”, and other specific problems. She explains how all of this can be ‘destructive’ simply because not all young men are the same, and not all young men have corresponding intentions. Suzanne Fields convinced me that I agree with how she sees…

Both articles are resistant to the anti-beauty claims made by feminist writers. “Anti-beauty myth” discusses why people are still beauty conscious despite feminist efforts to punish over-emphasis on beauty while “Taking Beauty’s Measure” believes beauty should be desired rather than being ostracised. Even though both writers…

    Palanquin Tassel Analysis

    • 1431 Words
    • 6 Pages

    In this article I have presented a critical study of three feminist utopias written in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century viz. The Palanquin Tassel (1889), Sultana’s Dream, (1905), and Herland (1915) from a comparative perspective. All these three works provide significant feminist critiques of the society of their times. They are therefore, I argue, significant contributions to the utopian ideas of nineteenth and twentieth century as well as to feminist theory. It is surprising,…

    “A Black Feminist Statement”, and Rhon Manigault-Bryant’s “An Open Letter to White Liberal Feminists”, the idea that multiple versions and conceptions of feminism exist becomes undeniable. Lorde writes that women should revel in differences and use them as a source of power instead of merely tolerating each other.
