2nd Wave!

Class has been busy and engrossing, almost too busy to blog!

 

We’ve gone through a lot of Second Wave texts, including excerpts from Betty Friedan’s The Feminine Mystique, Germaine Greer’s The Female EunuchSusan Faludi’s Backlash (a bit less second wave), Tillie Olsen’s “I Stand Here Ironing,” and Judy Brady’s “Why I Want a Wife.” We also read Audre Lorde’s “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House,” which is a critique to the racism, classism, heterosexism, ageism and ableism of some of the Second Wave texts we read.

Stimulating conversation!

Today we also asked students: Would you consider attending an all-women’s college? The answers were quite interesting!
