Essay: Convention Bound Society
The underlying irony that the author presents is the fact that these feminists are scorned as perpetrators and the cause of mayhem in an otherwise convention bound society. The very fact that these feminists are the cause for some of the rights given to women today has been clearly overlooked by men and hence, here lies the real matter. The questioning of those activities which seek to overtake social norms which themselves have created well-defined inequalities and discriminations.
The author questions the notion of sisterhood; the notion of all women being alike irrespective of their racial and cultural differences. This very notion is laughable due to the basic discriminations that exist within women today. Color has defined the rights the women have been granted and what has been overlooked is the abysmal role of history and precedents.
