Stil Il

“Feminists who see power as domination define all women as oppressed compared to all men. They wish to end male domination and see power as something defined only by patriarchal violence and the subjugation of women. This conception of power is very black & white and relies on a strict dichotomy, and it doesn’t do a very good job accounting for how race, class and numerous other factors change the experience of power for men and women. Plus, not everyone’s either a man or a woman, right? This idea of power is compelling, but not the real deal.”
