Classical Feminism

I've always believed that classical feminism was different from modern feminism, in that classical feminists were fighting against genuine violations of women's rights, whereas modern feminism consists primarily of overhyping sexism and trying to secure new legal privileges for women. I stand corrected:

On Mount Cyllene in the Peloponnese, as Tiresias came upon a pair of copulating snakes, he hit the pair a smart blow with his stick. Hera was not pleased, and she punished Tiresias by transforming him into a woman....After seven years as a woman, Tiresias again found mating snakes; depending on the myth, either she made sure to leave the snakes alone this time, or, according to Hyginus, trampled on them. As a result, Tiresias was released from his sentence and permitted to regain his masculinity....

In a separate episode, Tiresias was drawn into an argument between Hera and her husband Zeus, on the theme of who has more pleasure in sex: the man, as Hera claimed; or, as Zeus claimed, the woman, as Tiresias had experienced both. Tiresias replied "Of ten parts a man enjoys one only." Hera instantly struck him blind for his impiety.

Treating as axiomatic the idea that women get the short end of every stick (no pun intended)? Check. Refusal to accept evidence contradicting her preconceived notions? Check. Flying into a blind rage at someone who dares to disagree with her? Check. It turns out that "modern" feminism goes back a lot further than I ever suspected.

Even in the myths and stories

Even in the myths and stories of gods and goddesses feminism is exhibited. The gods and goddesses are on an often struggle for dominance over each other. Girl power is prevalent in these myths for sure. - Mario Romano Colts Neck

The theme of feminism is one

The theme of feminism is one of the eternal themes as gender inequality always interested public and attracted a lot of attention to this issue. If we talk about moeem opinion on this subject , I definitely agree with the author of the post that earlier feminists are a completely different direction . Now sometimes feminist organizations arrange improper shares and ispolzuyutsya some people to promote their own interests. In any case, the inequality between men and women laid down in the minds of both men and women and should be in the first place to deal with education and perceptions of the next generation , if we want to resolve this issue peacefully .
