Discovering Worlds Past and Present

When Will My Reflection Show . . .

Nothing stirs more emotion than the topic of Feminism.  For those not raised around it, the concept feels unfamiliar and more than a little pushy.  But, just because it makes us feel uncomfortable, does not mean it has nothing to say.  To use Plato’s language, being prisoners in a cave means we are sometimes dragged into a world we cannot see.

     Therefore, read this Overview of Feminist Criticism, then watch this video below.  In the space provided, answer the Typical Questions from the Overview.  Answer them in your own words, explaining how you may/may not see things differently (and whether you think the feminists could be right — and why it could be important to see things from their perspective).
