This assignment includes only a few readings that help us understand a part of the history of the women’s movement and theorizing of feminisms in the US. A lot of information is left out in this short semester. Hence to give you a context for Black feminisms/multiracial feminisms (the readings) that emerged during the second wave/third wave of the women’s movement I have posted a set of slides ( WGS history and perspectives uploaded under course material), please keep it open as you do your readings.

Respond (in 200 words each) to the following questions:

Describe how “black feminism” (Combahee collective) articulates a politics for addressing intersecting/interlocking oppressions.
What is “Le Mestiza consciousness”? (check out the slide on Chicana feminisms)
Describe the framework of “intersectionality.”
Discuss the evolution of Women’s and Gender Studies as a discipline within US universities.
