When women finally take a stand and they use their bodies to get their points across.
This is something that others will not understand, When women finally take a stand and they use their bodies to get their points across.
This is something that others do not seem to support especially other women, In the late 1800s and early 1900s African women sometimes used nudity to protest against colonial bureaucrats. Baring their buttocks and breasts, they forced men with power to look at them on their own terms, they decided who saw what and how they viewed it.
I don’t think you can really understand what is that these women go through until you have joined one of their protests. These women reject the whole notion of shame, they refuse to be shamed any longer by bullies. These are young feminists who have had the to raise their voices through their bare naked form. They demand that you hear their concerns.
The term it has been coined as,‘sextremism’. Some have viewed this as, a way of hogging attention, when it comes to women, is a great tactic if your priority is to get media attention, but it can be problematic because, often, that is the only way the media will pay attention to women. This than questions the whole cause these women would like to address.
Such modes of protests have been seen from the Three young women from Wits during the #feesmustfall movement last year as well as Rhodes university. They formed a human barricade across the street at the point where the campus meets the city late yesterday afternoon in defiance of a heavy police presence.
One student said she was demonstrating half naked because she did not believe her body should offend anyone.
The whole ideology of feminism primarily focuses on women’s ability to show and maintain their equality through their own actions and choices. So, let women decide what is best for them.
