What’s Next for Feminists?
May 22, 2020
The feminist movement has been one of the most vocal and popular milieus in the past few years. It has been present from large protests on the streets to campaigns in Hollywood, and has had an influence in society’s norms when it comes to inter-gender dynamics. At the same time, it has been criticised for anti-male bias and for shifting the identity of the Western world towards more risk aversion, and towards more emphasis on emotions and subjectivism.
In the midst of a health and social crisis, and with huge events ahead, such as the US elections and the upcoming economic challenges, what will be the role of feminism in the new era? Are the characteristics of the movement well-suited for the ‘new normal’, or will identity politics take the back-seat in the struggle of society to stand again on its feet?
