The Invisible Knapsack
  • What issue did this activity make clear?
  • The words “feminism”, “feminist” have negative overtones to them. Why and why is this a problem? What is feminism?
  • Why would feminism need it’s own critical school to advocate for their rights when it comes to literature and “texts”? What purpose do you think it will serve?
feminist criticism
Feminist Criticism
  • The feminist critical approach holds that most of our literature presents a masculine-patriarchal (phalocentric) view in which the role of women is negated or at best minimized.

Feminist Criticism
  • As an addition to the feminist movement in politics, the feminist critique of literature seeks to raise the consciousness about the importance and unique nature of women in literature, and to point out how language has been used to marginalize women.

Feminist Criticism
  • Stimulate the creation of a critical landscape that reflects a balanced view of the nature and value of women
