What is Feminism?

Feminism can be defined in many ways. Especially with third wave feminists, there can be as many forms of feminism as there are feminists!

For the purposes of this blog, we will define feminism in a specific way to hold the media we review to a certain standard.

Feminism: the movement to end sexist discrimination and oppression (thanks bell hooks)

Our reviews will take a look at representation and portrayal of women in the media and will take a special interest in intersectionality – how depictions of race, class, sexuality and sexual orientation interact with gender to create unique individual experiences.

Feel free to discuss in the comments below your definition of feminism.

Happy reading!
