The formal definition of feminism is “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.” 
The word feminism is often poorly understood. This video aims to address this.

I only interviewed cisgender men as I thought it would be an interesting way of showing that they can be feminists- this is something that from my experience I’ve learnt that this is not common knowledge.

A self criticism of this piece of work is that my exclusion of other gender binaries may have limited the range of answers I gathered.

I do view western gender binaries as societal constructs so limiting my responses to males who appear to be cisgender could be problematic.

I’m constantly questioning this issue and will continue developing this kind of work. This is my second ever attempt at street interviews so things aren’t perfect but I think I’m progressing as a practitioner, onwards and upwards!

I tried making a cool video and I don’t know if I like it but here it is.

Have you experienced Prejudice?

A dialogue between myself (a white cis female student from Northern Ireland) and strangers asking them about their experiences of prejudice.

"It can be wilful even to name racism: as if the talk about divisions is what is divisive. Given that racism recedes from social consciousness, it appears as if the ones who ‘bring it up’ are bringing it into existence. " Sarah Ahmed.

This project investigates how I can approach conversations about prejudice of all forms more effectively. It provokes ideas surrounding an extensive amount of issues including; race, gender and class as these issues of identity are all inter relatable and extremely complex.

Discouraging people from talking about issues of prejudice only re-forces an institutionalised framework that makes those of different backgrounds appear different or threatening. This I why I feel these conversations are so important.
