Women and Feminism

In "Women and Feminism" we consider artifacts that provoke us to consider how gender constructs raise moral and social questions. Gendered language, itself, is reflective of those constructs and it may be a useful exercise to consider the degree to which any one of us is a person of his or her time. The swing between men's or society's attitudes of chivalry and misogyny, or between women's degrees of dependence and independence and the language and imagery each conjures is a worthwhile contemplation.
