Pseudo-Feminism & It’s Impact on Intersectional Feminism
From the women led parlours of France to the Suffragette and #MeToo movement, feminism has established itself as a structural development advocating for equality of all genders. The focus on uplifting women has been often misconstrued by various factions with critics arguing that the rise of pseudo-feminism is detrimental to all efforts that demand equality. How has pseudo-feminism warped our understanding of feminism? Is modern feminism truly intersectional? What are some disparities between women’s rights movements in the developing vs the developed world? This episode deals with some of the aforementioned major questions with panel members including Abbie Seto (Senior Columnist), Jiayin Zhou (Ambassador), Anna Johnson (Poetry Columnist) and our guest speaker Joseph Liang, a recognised provincial level debate from Canada. Moderated by Vaishu Koduri, administrative supervisor.
Role Of Nationalism In The 21st Century
Over the past decade, the world has seen a rise in nationalist sentiments around the world. Supporters of the movement have applauded the efforts of nation-states to prioritise the efforts of bettering the affairs of one's own country while critics argue that the concept alienates minority communities that lie outside the definition set by the nationalists. In this episode, The Written Revolutions invites student journalists, activists and leaders including-- Alazne Qaisar (Founder & CEO of TWR), our guest panellist Jolie Gan (Founder & President of Youth Leaders In Law), Henry Yang (Event Manager & Poetry Columnist at TWR) and lastly, Amaan Siddiqui (Junior Columnist in Asian Affairs & Ambassador for TWR). They discuss the history of nationalism and segue into the application of nationalism in today's modern society, how the perceptions towards it have changed and the effects of the same.
