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!
