several complex issues
The readings of Unit one touch on several complex issues, including sex and gender as a human rights issue, the historical rise of feminism as a concept, the analysis of feminism as empowerment and role in popular media, intersectionality and colonial feminism, and finally the formulation of identities and postmodern intersectional feminism, especially related to criminology. I feel that this leave us at awe at the complexity of the society we live in, especially when it comes to gender relations. Explain in your own words what it means to put women in the center, as subjects of social study. How does the notion that women have already achieved equality intersect with concerns of feminism, consumption and personal style? Give two-three examples from the readings and try to relate those to your community.
