It is used to detect if a person in the relationship is being exploited by the partner/family. Hampton believes that in order for a relationship to be equitable. there cannot be exploitation of any kind.
A Modern View of Feminist Criticism William Shakespeare 's "Othello” can be analyzed from a feminist perspective. This criticism focuses on relationships between genders, like the patterns of thoughts, behavior, values, enfranchisement, and power in relations between and within sexes. A feminist examination of the play enables us to judge the distinctive social esteems and status of women and proposes that the male-female power connections that become an integral factor in scenes of Othello impact its comprehension. I believe that the critical lens that provides modern society with the most compelling view of literature is Feminist Criticism because it analyzes distrust and disloyalty among relationships, women being treated as possessions
Even after this, she would not let it get to her as she believes Latina women are works of God. Cofer’s purpose for writing this essay was to show that Latina women are victimized even though “they make good domestics” (Cofer). She also explicitly states that her “personal goal in [her] public life is to try to replace the old persuasive stereotypes and myths about Latinas with a much more interesting set of realities”
Relationality and relational theory, which is “rooted in transdisciplinary and diverse fields,” provides the underpinning for Doucet’s (2016) astute analysis (p. 3). Relational theory focuses on layers of dependence and interdependence, and on the social construction of norms and roles within relational structures. One of the foundational arguments of Doucet’s (2016) research is that binaries, which are also socially constructed, can impede meaningful social justice. Binaries include the most obvious gender binary of male/female, but also extend to more abstract binaries like subject/object. Binaries are indeed part of the established feminist discourse and relevant to Doucet’s (2016) analysis.

The feminist focusing on the practice of the human right universality rather than the theory, but the relativist is otherwise they focusing on both theory and
If the reader can understand the presentation of the author, then the interpretation will have a sense of flow with what is being read. Susan Minot uses a feminist aspect on how she portrays the character in “Lust.” In an article by Janet Chatez, “The term ‘feminist theory’ is used to refer to a myriad of kinds of works, pro- duced by movement activists and scholars in a variety of disciplines; these are not mutually exclusive and include: (a) normative discussions of how societies and relationships ought to be structured, their current inequities, and strategies to achieve equity; (b) critiques of androcentric classical theories, concepts, episte- mologies, and assumptions; (c) epistemological discussions of what constitute appropriate forms, subject matters, and techniques of theorizing from a feminist perspective; and (d ) explanatory theories of the relationship between gender and various social, cultural, economic, psychological, and political structures and processes” (Chaftez 97-98). She discusses the concept of gender roles over the past several decades, were women use the strong theory to stand behind what they are fighting or portraying in their everyday life. Although most women are not considered strong feminist, the theory holds true for how women want to be considered in
Intersectionality is a feminist sociological theory that was first highlighted by Kimberle Crenshaw. It’s a methodology of studying the relationships among modalities of intersecting social identities and related systems of oppression, domination, and discrimination. The instructional approach is a scholar, which recognizes the importance among men and women rather than the differences between them.

This essay will explore the ways in which important aspects of disability discrimination laws are in the same realm with feminist and communitarian theory. The essay explains how disability discrimination law accounts for distinct the relationships of individuals, validates that differences between persons, address issues of long dependency, and encourages communication between parties in order to increase equality. Equality is involved when the state unwillingly keeps people separated from their distinct communities. The essay argues that these attributes of disability discrimination law are reflecting in the scope of feminist theory.

Its fair to say through the years literature has shown common themes and ideologies that connect deeply with values and concepts learned from history.

Feminist theory is one of the theories that is largely looked at when analyzing the books “Of mice and men” and “The Great Gatsby.”
