What should make you mad and agitated to read in media about men, women, their equality?
Feminism involves social and political movement in our society which demonstrate and arms to established personal, economic and social equality in our society. Our societies prioritize the male point of view and women are always treated unfairly within those male prioritize society, feminism incorporate those position. Feminist movement are campaigned For women rights like right to vote, to hold public, office to work, to earn fair wages, equal pay and also it eliminates gender pay gap , to own property, to receive education, to enter into commitment , to have equal rights within marriage etc. Feminist have also worked to protect access social integration and to protect the girls from rape, sexual harassment and domestic violence. Change in dress is not an part of feminism movement. Feminist have taken a diversity of positions on non-identical aspects of the sexual revolution from 1960s and 1970s. Over 1970s a large number of influential women accepted lesbian and bisexual women as part of feminism. Feminists views of pornography range from condemnation of pornography a form of violence against women to an embracing of some forms of pornography as a modern feminists expression. Controlling ones sexuality and its right is the key issue for feminists. Feminists such as Catharibg MacKinnon argue that women have a very little control over their own bodies. In conservative and religious culture marriage is regarded as an constitution where wife is required to be available at all time for sex, without any limit, thus forcing and coercion is not considered as crime. Feminists movement has effected changes in western society including women suffrage, greater access to education the right of women to make individual decisions regarding pregnancy. Many people think that men and women are not same so they cant be equal. Here is an example of why: if there were 2 young boys in a classroom, and one is week and small and the other was physically strong, would we believe that its right to keep the weaker to the same access to the teacher for class resources , book etc. The vast majority believe that their shall be Equality of both men and women. But still we women’s are always suppressed by our society, we are always bound by some rules and regulations, we need to always stay in discipline. I am asking why??? Why always the women need to follow this rules and regulations why not men? The answers are only one our thinking, our male dominating society. Even some people hate the term feminism because they think we women control their right, power, position and we control the world.
As in reading the media uproar ever Emma Watsons Baring a bit of her breasts in Vanity Fair this month. Women are fighting among themselves what feminism is and how women should behave if they are true feminists. Emma makes a powerful point – feminism and its core is about core. Feminist can wear whatever they want to wear its all their choice.
But now-a-day some women of our society misused the word feminism. There was a trending case where a girl has misused his right. She makes false allegations on his boyfriend and made his brutally beaten by his 5 friends. In some cases the word feminism was misemployed by women. Increasing use of social media has mainly boost up the interest of feminism. In 2000 feminism was characterized by individual narrative
THE THREE PREVIOUS PHASES OF FEMINISM
1ST PHASE: The first phase wave of feminism was characterized by the struggle for legal right today feminist narratives have a much more collective feel. Voting right was the main moto of the campaign.
2ND PHASE: swept much of the west in 1960s and 1970s and included the fight for equal pay, family policy, abortion right and fight against domestic violence.
3RD PHASE: It took place around the serenity and marked the desire for more diversity in the feminists debate. Feminism was characterized as a western middle class project and heterosexual project.
8TH MARCH IS POPULAR AGAIN, for a while people where thinking that 8th march is die but in 2014 and 2015 it was attracted a huge turnout.
Cases on feminism
The trending case bois locker room
According to the Delhi Police, juvenile girl created a fake profile in the name of a boy and chatted with another juvenile male about ‘sexual assault’ on a girl.
The Minor girl created fake profile only to test boy’s character.
In the ‘Bois Locker Room’ case a recent twist has emerged. The Cyber Cell of Delhi said that a juvenile girl created a fake Snap chat profile and discussed ‘sexually assault’ on a girl with another minor boy.
The fake profile was created in the name of siddharth. The juvenile girl then allegedly posted a derogatory post was posted by a juvenile girl about herself and members reacted to the post.
However, either of the puerilities by the juveniles for the real or fake usernames was in any way related to the ‘Bois Locker Room’ Instagram group. The purpose of her sending such chat messages using a fake, fictional identity was to the reaction of the receiver boy and the brawn of his character, especially when someone talks bad things about the girl herself. The receiver was also a teenager and rebuffed to participate in any such plan suggested by ‘Siddharth’ and stopped further communication with ‘him’.
Here the girl misused his right and makes false allegation on the boy.
True feminism, which seeks to liberate all women, leads to a policy of solidarity, an economy of solidarity and evolution. It is important that both women and men continue to identify feminists and link them to a policy of solidarity. Feminism must be evolutionary in order to be completely feminist. It is also very important that all progressive movements are aware of the problems of crossism and try to eliminate all forms of inequality, including male domination and sexual oppression, both inside and outside the organization. This movement is a leading actor in the new theater world, but most do not know. We need to make lenses out of resistance to the structure, confront what we want, and be inspired by many economic examples of world solidarity.
The #Metoo campaign that swept across Norway and the world before Christmas is part of what is called the fourth wave of feminism. Feminism implies not a blind reverence towards female but it advocates equal and just position to both the strata. So there should be no misrepresentation and once sided approach.
I am ending my words with the lines of Cheris Kramarae “Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings.”
