Today’s reading (by Peet & Hartwick) talks about feminism and feminist theory in terms of political movements, social theories, and different philosophies. The theories that the reading discusses are important in understanding gender relations as they go over the knowledge behind feminism and feminist movements, and how feminism has developed and its involvement in development. Peet and Hartwick discuss three main movements of feminism in order to argue their main points. The first movement, which took place between the 19th and 20th centuries, concentrated on equal rights; contract rights, right to vote, and property rights.

Black migrants were not only participants in civil right protests, integrationist activities, and abolitionist activism they were in many cases its leaders. Abolitionist activism took on a personal meaning due to the fact that many southern migrants living in Boston had been slave themselves. The tradition of leadership in organizations and protest in Boston’s black society can best be explained by examining the activism of a number of important black families.

“On the one hand there was liberal feminism; on the other hand, there was women’s liberation. People also sometimes talked about that wing as comprised of radical feminism and socialist feminism, with radical feminists regarding women’s oppression as the root of all oppression and socialist feminism placing women’s oppression within the other context of other forms of oppression, particularly race and class” (Finsterbusch, 2013, p.147). Epstein goes on to suggest that the women’s movement currently has narrowed its politics and as the women’s movement has aged it has become vulnerable to absorbing the current trends within its own class and as a result this has led to the movement not taking center stage. Epstein concludes that we need to “return to a sort of revised version of radical feminism and place feminism within the demand of an egalitarian society and a demand for a society that respects human connection and communities and promotes them rather than destroying them” (Finsterbusch, 2013,
New feminism is also viewed as a step backwards by many especially in foresight. These new feminists stopped challenging the ideological issues caused by their gender, and their new ideology became too similar to that of antifeminists. Their new demands were based on what women at home might need instead of equal voting rights. In Woman’s Leader, Mary Stocks with Rathbone that the promotion of motherhood was more important than demanding equal pay and equal opportunities because “the majority of women workers are only birds of passage in their trade” (Kent, 1988, p. 241). With how feminism is seen today, this shift was a fatal change.
The study created by Loftus and Palmer (1974) presented an attempt to understand how the remembrance of complex events within our presence can cause a reconstruction within memory. Loftus and Palmer’s study consisted of two different experimental methods revolving around traffic accidents. The first study was to understand how the changing of a word in a sentence could affect the answer to speed. In experiment one, forty-five students were split into seven groups. In each group, there was a film shown from five to thirty seconds implementing a traffic incident.
Differences of approach are prevalent in regards to first and second wave feminism. First of all, through the 19th and 20th centuries first wave feminists focus on specific basic rights such as women’s suffrage and property rights, through the lens of human individuality, viewing humans as free and disinterested. By contrast, second wave feminists of the 1960s through the 1980s advocate for liberties more relevant for their time, such as sexual, reproductive and workplace rights, then they contrast the first wave approach by demolishing the ideas of personal freedoms set in place by a patriarchal society. Indeed, first wave feminists believe in working within a patriarchal system to achieve true equality and autonomy since we are equal in
The question requires one to analyse the validity of the enactment of retroactive law in view of the jurisprudential theories of H. L A. Hart and Lon Fuller. The factual situation given above also entails evaluation of the area related to amnesty law that provides for immunity for criminal offence committed, however, the civil liability will also be considered. The jurisprudential debate of Hart and Fuller in the Harvard Law Review in 1958 would be of importance as it reflects the different view of Hart and Fuller. The debate was about the case of ‘Grudge Informer’ where the wife during the Third Reich depending on the Nazi law, informs on her spouse of his anti- government activities.
Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal. It defines, establishes, and achieves equal political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. “This was also the perspective conveyed by the best know histories of the American women’s movement published prior to 1970, in which feminism effectively began in 1848 at Seneca Falls and the focus was on votes for women” (Offen 6). In Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale shows how women advocated feminism in order to increase a political ideal. However, people say that it is impossible to read the novel without being aware of the issues of gender and the aspects of feminism, that are central to it.

However it should be added that since it is a multi-faceted movement, many forms of feminism exist. Feminism is considered to be one of the most pervasive movements of the previous century (Gamble 2001, vii). Gamble claims that it “has achieved the dubious distinction of becoming an utterly familiar part of our cultural landscape” (ibid.). Today feminism
Chapter I On Woman For a long time, since the beginning of the first wave movement of Feminism in the 19th century, the main goal has always been to liberate women in order to be equal to men. Though political rights have been achieved by the late 19th century which is the highlight of the first wave movement and economic independence has been granted to women as a result of the second wave movement, still women has not yet achieved the full liberation as the same men. This condition of women makes way to third wave movement that aims for social equality thus it seems that even until today, women are still left behind, to the point that we now question if “liberation” is attainable for women.

The term "women's rights" and the set of practices that are attached to its use are the endlessly developing product of an international movement to improve upon the status of women. In the 1980s and 1990s, women's movements all over the world formed networks and organizations to give greater clarity to both the problems that women face every day and to the position of women's experiences in economic, social, political, cultural and environmental issues. The concept of women's rights rest its attainment and the development of its use to the fact that it is at the same time prosaic and revolutionary. On the one hand, the idea of women's rights makes common sense. It declares, rather simply, that as human beings women have human rights.
