    they are interested in that one class that stands out the most, Women’s Studies. Then the conversation gets deeper into what the class has learned so far, what feminism is and our opposing or similar views on the subject. Specifically this time I asked certain questions such as “how they defined feminism? “, “What they thought Women’s Studies was?” and “How have they experienced power, privilege or oppression in their life?” The official definition of feminism is “the belief that men and women should have equal rights/opportunities and organized activity in support of women 's rights and interests” (Feminism). I asked my close friend, Justin Malave, on his belief and views on feminism. I explained I was in a class called “Women’s Studies” and what he thought it was. He said that “Feminism is actually a peculiar interest of mine. It is most likely about sexuality, race, class and the world.” Next, I asked him what he thought feminism was and he said “Feminism: The belief that men and women are or should be equal in every controllable way.” My third question was about “if he ever faced oppression or privilege because of feminism?” and Justin said “If I have faced any sort of oppression because of feminism, it is because those who imposed on civility…

    The start of my semester taking Introduction to Women’ Studies in September, I had no clue what the real meaning of the course meant. I thought this class will teach me all about how women are powerful and what they do or did in this world that made history. Although, after taking Introduction to Women’s Studies, I found out that it is more than what I thought it was when I first sat in the class in September. Now, I have a better understanding of Women’s Studies. Such as: lesbian baiting,…

    more informed on feminism and it’s practices. During week 6 of Women’s and Gender Studies the theme was early feminism.

    Sjoberg uses the conflict in Libya as case study and demonstrates that it is possible to talk about it without referring to sex, gender, and sexuality, but we miss much, in terms of what happens and how to explain what happens, when these concepts are not thought of (Sjoberg, 2015: 437). Women were involved in the Libyan conflict in many ways, however on the basis of gender they are positioned, treated, and engaged with different from men in their involvement (Sjoberg, 2015: 439). Just like it…

Each of these categories allows for an understanding of the historical disadvantage minority people have and deviant people in our society. Two texts from this semester that explain and relate the field of gender and women’s…

    The Introduction to Women’s Studies class was very informative and very eye opening for me. There are many things that I learned about women’s history and many of those things are still very significant today for the fight for equality and women’s rights. Some of my favorite topics were matters that I had a personal interest in, as well as my own experiences with. I am very focused on fighting for equality for everyone, especially for woman; with this comes the understanding that we need to…

    In her scholarly article “Why I’m Still Writing Women’s Literary History”, Professor Devoney Looser astutely asserts that women’s literary history is a field that is alive and thriving and therefore deserves to be treated as such. Her argument centers around addressing concerns expressed by various colleagues of hers that the academic field of women’s studies is now “passe” due to taking a “separatist” approach. Looser explicitly states that her article is therefore “a credo that has its origins…

    student in English education and Literature in English, I wondered why women writings seem to be an overlooked subject. Out of curiosity, a long term research into women’s experience, culture, and society explored through the lens of postcolonial, feminist, social and cultural theories was born. Through this research I have learned that oppressive cultural aspect of gender relationships, especially between women is something that is being dismissed and narratives about women were exclusively…
