Check out Woodhull Alumna, Courtney Martin’s “Reinventing Feminism” as she examines the perennially loaded word “feminism” in this personal and heartfelt talk. She talks through the three essential paradoxes of her generation’s quest to define the term for themselves. Read Courtney’s full bio at TED.com
Mary Wollstonecraft is most commonly referred to as “The first feminist” or “The mother of feminism” for her writings on feminism and philosophy. Her essay “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” from 1792 is one of the earliest works of feminist thought, in which she argues that men and women should have equal education and treated both as rational human beings. This essay was in response to Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s “Emile” from 1762 in which he argued that woman should be educated for the pleasure and service of men.
“Women are systematically degraded by receiving the trivial attentions which men think it manly to pay to the sex, when, in fact, men are insultingly supporting their own superiority.”
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman was considered a radical text as Wollstonecraft was highly critical of the contemporary attitudes towards woman at the time.
Volunteer Party & Gift Wrapping Night
Tuesday, Decmeber 14th, 6 PM
The Service Fund’s Annual Holiday Gift Drive provides a brighter holiday season for young women (ages 12-17) facing violence in their lives – many of whom live in local shelters or transitional housing in the NYC area.
Three ways to participate in the Gift Drive:
1) Purchase or bring like-new items to the office for donation (you can also donate cash – as we try to buy the girls each a $10 gift card every year).
**Drop off hours are Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm, at our location (150 West 28th Street, Suite 304 @ 7th Ave) between November 29th and December 14th
