Neo-Liberalism and the Defanging of Feminism

“From the Personal Is Political to the Personal is Personal: Neo-Liberalism and the Defanging of Feminism.”

Gail Dines, professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College, and author of Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality, explores how mainstream feminism has lost its way by fighting for the individual rights of a small group of elite white women instead of the collective liberation of all women. Dines argues that much of what passes for feminism today is focused on the pseudo-empowerment offered to women who conform to the narrow standards of femininity set by the porn culture. She calls for a feminism that is unapologetically fierce in its commitment to radical social change.

So this is pretty cool. I gave the Convocation address at Wheelock College. I talked about seeing race and changing how we see race.
