UR – reflections on feminism

Hi Edouard,

Your post raises interesting questions that were also asked by several of us (you included, I believe) during the discussion in our last course, when the theme was education and learning for social change.

Some of us suggested that the feminist approach followed in the path of a dichotomous view of the world (Marxism vs. capitalism), and that it would be worthwhile looking outside those boxes and considering more systems-thinking alternatives. I am afraid, but of course this is just a personal opinion that the questions you have raised will keep popping up, as I believe they stem from a linear thinking paradigm based on mutually exclusive perspectives.

I had posted some thoughts on this theme on my e-portfolio webpage at:

If that doesn’t work, try this:

I find Marie Carr’s comment posted at the bottom very appropriate and encouraging.

Cheers,

Oscar
