Readings for 9/25: Economic Injustice

We have talked in class about an intersectional analysis of the world, where we hone our critical lenses across issues of gender, race, sexuality, social class, ability and other like categories. As you think about issues of social class and economic injustice, why do you think that feminists would take these issues up? What makes money and class a "feminist issue?"

This week we will be looking at issues of social class and how they relate to Gender and Society. Your reading is all online for this week.

--> Spend an hour exploring these two websites:

PBS: People Like Us


Logo, Center for Working Class Studies
Center for Working Class Studies

I think you will enjoy the resources that you find there.
Then, blog about them. You blog can describe what you found and name some interesting issues that you notice. But I also want you to take at least one paragraph to answer the question: Why/how is economic inequity a feminist issue?

  1. I really think that the websites was a cool idea. i personally do not like reading, and the interaction on these two websites was cool. i liked how i could click onto different links, and it would show me a different scenery. it kept me very interested. plus since i was already on the computer, i found it easier to google terms i did not understand.
    along with the pros of being internet sources, the assignment was completed faster.
