Women's Liberation: Where Do I Fit In?
This class is for women who want to understand the basic truths about how we are held back on the job, in the classroom, and in the home; how a feminist movement was organized to change it; how we can learn from it to build the kind of movement that can put male chauvinists on the run again, and how each woman can contribute to that effort. Open to women only, the class will teach the radical ideas and methods that sparked the rebirth of the feminist movement in the 1960s.
You will learn about the heroic struggle women have waged, individually and collectively, for our survival and our freedom; the political causes of the unhappiness in our daily lives; women's progress owing to the feminist movement; and how to use this information to change conditions for women.
The class is a combination of study and hands-on activity; including lecture, class discussion of assigned reading, film, consciousness-raising, and planning and participating in a feminist action.
This class is not about personal liberation through improved self-esteem or an alternative women's culture. It is not about how feminism can save the planet, nor is it about achieving status in the present corrupt system through individual self-improvement or lifestyle changes.
