Transcript of Neverending Feminist Histories Project

Feminist Histories
Project (work in progress) Feminist History Models US Wave Model Prior to considering the histories presented by these models and examples of interest, it is important to understand the politics that undergird each approach to history. First Wave (1848-1920) WWII Pacifists US Waves
Highlights hegemonic feminist analysis and struggles. Hegemonic feminism primarily has been based in a liberal (equality and individual rights-focused) politic. This model tends to efface the range of feminisms and broader political context of feminist history.

US Comparative/Multiracial Feminisms
Recenters women of color feminists in movement history. Comparative approach highlights overlaps with other movements (e.g. Civil Rights, American Indian). As this model emerges via critique, it inconsistently addresses global politics and feminisms.

Global Feminisms
Presents a history of feminism from the perspectives of women from the Global South. This model draws upon global political dynamics and does not center US feminist or broader political history. What are the politics that ground feminism and feminist histories? Hegemonic Feminisms Liberal - equal rights, individual rights, "trickle down feminism"
Socialist or Marxist - critique of gendered division of labor and capitalism
Cultural - women and men are "essentially" different, values Western feminized attributes e.g. cooperation, caring, and non-violence
Radical - transhistorical claim that patriarchy is fundamental oppression Comparative Feminisms Highlights movements that feminists participated in and that contributed to the politics of US multiracial feminism. What are the Global South and Global North? A debated division, Global South is contemporarily used to refer countries considered "Third World," "underdeveloped" or "developing," while the Global North includes "first world," most "second world" or "developed" countries. While this division is broad and effaces many complexities, "Global South" helps illuminate solidarity in the face of continued global injustice. This approach is necessary in light of the continued privileging of "Global North" nations' interests in global economics and politics.
