Being at an all women’s college forces you to think about your gender -whether you like it or not. To me, being a woman was important but did not imply so many issues before. I knew about the Suffragettes, the social revolutions that happened in the 1960s and the movements that are still fighting today against the oppressions of women.
But, by reading and talking about it these past weeks, I came to the conclusion that Feminism is very temporary as a whole because some issues like the right to vote has been obtained in many countries and doesn’t need to be debated anymore in these particular countries like France, England or Germany to quote a few.
So, why is this label still used to describe a totally different approach to women’s rights? Why do I have so many problems defining the term and why do I feel that I need to back up a little when talking about this concept? Maybe because it’s a very difficult subject to grasp. Obviously it’s not a simple matter. But, hey, it’s so interesting that I don’t give up with the attempt to find the perfect definition for it.
