Title: Womanism
Post by: Louise on April 04, 2015, 09:18:54 AM
"Womanism is a social change prespective rooted in Black Women's and other women of color's everyday experiences and everyday methods of problem solving in everyday spaces, extended to the problem of ending all forms of opression for all people, restoring the balance between people and the evironment/ nature, and reconciling human life with the spirtual dimension... Unlike feminism, and despite its name, womanism does not emphasize or privilege gender or sexism; rather, it elevates all sites and forms of oprression, whether they are based on social- address categories like gender, race, or class, to a level of equal concern and action" (2006:xx-xxii)
