Questioning Feminism at CC


Loomis Hall
Loomis Lounge (map)



This event will start at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2013 in the Loomis Lounge. There will be free pizza.

Some people have criticized the effectiveness of the “aggressive,” “polarizing,” “confrontational” rhetoric a generalized group of people uses on the campus of Colorado College (CC) while advocating feminism. Those critics, who see second-wave feminism in this day as a sort of chauvinism and third-wave feminism as a form of humanism, have urged that the students of CC embrace the third wave, abandoning the second wave. However, some people of the aforementioned group that is generalized as belonging to the second wave argue that the second wave is still relevant in this age and that their rhetoric is only thought-provoking; they also do not consider third-wave feminism a feminist activism that has a direction and effective means. The Philosophy Circle questions, "What ethos must feminist activism at CC have so as to be effective?"
