An Analysis of Western Feminism

This presentation focuses on critiquing what is now known as western feminism. Many feminists shudder at the state of the world's gender inequality but may not stop and process their own impact in the world. This presentation looks at the global state of feminism and analyzes queer feminist understanding of transnational feminism and feminist activism. The presentation argues that so called western feminists must understand other types of feminism in order to truly make a difference in the world's interpretation of feminism. This understanding could lead to a more active and unified transnational feminist movement.
