Scopes of Feminsim

As Defined by the book “Feminist Theories and Social Work: Approaches and Applications” by Christine Flynn Saulnier ©1996

Liberal Feminism- Argues that, based on gender, women are unfairly denied equal access to society’s resources.

Radical Feminism- argues that society is psychologically structured on male needs, that to maintain that order women’s needs are subjugated, and that the fabric of society must be fundamentally altered.

Lesbian Feminism- challenges the organization of society around both heterosexual and male dominance and the ongoing enforcement of that arrangement.

Cultural Feminism- holds that women are more peaceful, cooperative, and nurturing than men, probably because women reproduce and nurture species.

Ecofeminism- is the application of women’s culture to efforts toward peace and ecology.

Socialist Feminism- blames the economics of capitalism in combination with patriarchy for women’s subordinate position in society.

Womanism (African American Feminism) - defines sexism as one of multiple interlocking systems of oppression functioning simultaneously and interdependently, inextricable from each other theoretically or experientially.

Postmodern Feminism- argues that since woman is socially defined and inherently distorting term, which cannot be defended on empirical or theoretical grounds, we have no reason to think females have an inherent nature or role. Thus, social organization rooted i gender is based on an invented concept.

Global Feminism- seeks to explain the interconnectedness of disparate feminist struggles by examining how world-wide economic factors combine with national histories of colonialism, religion and culture to oppress women

As a black person this makes me really proud but at the same time it really frustrates me because the news never focus on the positive qualities of blacks which in reality actually out weighs the negatives but the media only focus on the negatives.. why does a 4 year old black boy cussing makes huge media headlines but a 4 year black girl genius does not……that’s what really frustrates me. 

Look at this photo and try and tell me that I’m less worthy of love, power and attention because I have more fat cells, that I’m less intelligent because my skin is the color that they hate, but try to achieve. It’s Friday and I urge you all to step away from the concept that your physicality is where your worth is. Fuck the constructed labels they pin to you and enjoy your existence in its full form today.

A Black History Joint

Had to pick a picture for class that describes Black History Month, but I decided to draw mine. There are quite a few black animated series, but there are three more predominant, more respected series that are always thought of: Fat Albert, The Proud Family and The Boondocks. With stuff like Static Shock or Class of 3000 being second thoughts, of course.


These shows ran for a good amount of years, shaped generations and gave a positive view on African Americans, whether it’d be Fat Albert’s fantastic morals about friendship and life, Penny Proud’s energy and ambition to try to do more or Huey Freeman’s reflection and self-loathing commentary on how our culture is as a whole.

So, yeah. I think, during this month, all animation fans should just appreciate what these shows have to offer. Being well-written, well-handled and just all around memorable, my black history heroes are Bill Cosby, Bruce W. Smith and Aaron McGruder.
Great work, guys!
