Last week’s course module reading introduced the concept of Body Politics. This week’s readings add the concept of difference to body politics, and ask us to think about how women’s bodies can situate them within multiple identity categories.
FIRST, define “intersectionality” (or “intersectional feminism”) in your own words.
THEN, discuss how intersectional identity can affect women’s experiences and relationship to society.
Refer to at least three learning resources assigned for this week in your response (these may include last week’s course module reading “Women and Body Politics“) and provide specific examples from the reading, the news, or your own life. Some questions to consider:
Original Post: Provide your initial post which responds to the Discussion prompt by 11:59 pm on Friday. Initial question responses posted after Friday but before the end of the class week on Tuesday earn a maximum of 70/80 possible points for the original post. Your initial post should be at least 250-300 words in length, excluding the discussion prompt and the references. Posts should engage meaningfully with at least three assigned learning resources.
Peer Responses: Respond to at least two classmates’ initial posts by 11:59 pm on Tuesday. Replies should be a minimum of 75-100 words in length and demonstrate critical thinking, engagement with course material, and a meaningful attempt to engage in discourse. Replies to others should build on an idea mentioned in the original post with an additional example and/or cite the learning resources in addition to any part where you agree with or praise the original post (which is always appreciated!).
References: Use APA parenthetical citations in your text and include a reference list at the end of your post.
