Marxist feminism is a philosophical variant of feminism that incorporates and extends Marxist theory.

This resource will help you begin the process of understanding literary theory and schools of criticism and how they are used in the academy. Feminist criticism is concerned with "the ways in which literature and other cultural productions reinforce or undermine the economic, political, social, and psychological oppression of women" Tyson This school of theory looks at how aspects of our culture are inherently patriarchal male dominated and aims to expose misogyny in writing about women, which can take explicit and implicit forms.
Following the line of this epistemological turn away from language, we invite different interpretations of affect and seek interdisciplinary approaches that examine connections between affect and feminist politics. We are interested in examining the relation between meaning and sense, representation and event, perception and experience, capital and objects of emotions, in order to try and answer the question about whether a focus on affect, not only as a force manifested on a personal level as emotion , but as an impersonal intensity "of what the human shares with everything it is not" Brian Massumi , can lead to reexamination of our views on feminist theory and politics. If feminism's "killjoy" capacity exposes "the bad feelings that get hidden, displaced, or negated under public signs of joy" Sara Ahmed , what are the dangers of turning the politics of happiness into a politics of anger, as Ahmed suggests? What are the "affective objects" that feminism is directed to? If affect is a force created between different bodies, is there a need for a renewed embodiment of feminist politics? We encourage active participation and debate that will bring together disciplines from across the humanities, social sciences, art, political theory, cultural studies, philosophy, etc.

Barbara B. This article examines text and consumer responses from the perspective of postmodern feminist literary criticism. It uses a feminist framework to incorporate the issues of advertising as gendered text and consumer responses as gendered readings into consumer research. Next, this method is demonstrated in a feminist reading of two advertising figures—the Marlboro Man and the Dakota Woman. Then, the article presents a feminist perspective on gendered reading—different male and female reading styles relevant to consumers and ads. Last, ideas about gendered texts and readers are integrated into ongoing consumer research on attitude toward the ad, inferencing, and empathy. Most users should sign in with their email address.

History and theory of feminism The term feminism can be used to describe a political, cultural or economic movement aimed at establishing equal rights and legal protection for women. Feminism involves political and sociological theories and philosophies concerned with issues of gender difference, as well as a movement that advocates gender equality for women and campaigns for women's rights and interests. Although the terms "feminism" and "feminist" did not gain widespread use until the s, they were already being used in the public parlance much earlier; for instance, Katherine Hepburn speaks of the "feminist movement" in the film Woman of the Year. According to Maggie Humm and Rebecca Walker, the history of feminism can be divided into three waves. The first feminist wave was in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the second was in the s and s, and the third extends from the s to the present.
