Philosophy 265 Exam 2 Review Guide Carol Moeller The exam will focus on pp. 1-84 of Feminist Freedom Warriors; yet it will build on material from earlier in the course, such as the Minnich text and videos such as Chimamanda Adichie’s TED talks “The Danger of a Single Story” and “We Should All Be Feminists.” Remember that you are responsible for all the assigned interviews and text, even what we did not go over in class. This study guide is suggestive, not exhaustive. The videos and audio recordings are at Be sure to watch the introduction video, “FFW Preview.” There is a great deal of depth and complexity to the material, and many terms and visions that may be unfamiliar. I’d suggest you read and re-read, watch and re-watch multiple times, rewinding and reviewing material that you do not understand. Feel free to email me questions or raise them in class. Strive for excellent writing, clear expression of ideas, strong explanations, insight, and good grasp of the meaning of the videos and text. Remember that the exam scores are based on the quality of writing as well as the “content.” Pretend that your reader will be someone pretty unfamiliar with the interviewees and concepts involved. Don’t assume that they will know the “jargon,” explain things fully. Remember that you need not agree with the text and interviewers. Your job is to engage sympathetically to grasp their ideas, reasoning, and visions on their own terms, even as you might choose in your 5-6 page essay to challenge some of them. Schedule: there will be no class meeting Tuesday, October 16 (fall break) or Thursday, October 18 (prof is away) – so spend extra time reviewing the material. We will talk more about the material in class Tuesday, October 23 and Thursday, October 25, and Exam 2 will be in class Tuesday, October 30. For each person, be ready to explain: • Some significant things about their early lives • how they came to develop feminist consciousness • how each defines/thinks of feminism • how each critiques certain other versions of feminism • how they came to work for social change • what some contexts have been for their feminist work • some significant challenges and/or lessons from their experiences doing this work • how/why each sees critiques of racism, capitalism, imperialism, homophobia, transphobia (whichever each focuses upon) as crucial to feminism • how each imagines liberation/positive change. The following are some key moments, ideas, and questions I suggest you focus on. Introduction (Carty and Mohanty): • How Carty and Mohanty characterize the present political moment, present day challenges, etc. • How they see anti-imperialism and anti-capitalism as important to feminism. • Why they think the Feminist Freedom Warriors project is important. • “Building coalitions and solidarities across struggles”. (pp. 9-11) Margo Okazawa-Rey: • Early childhood experiences in Japan • Reflections about her identity in childhood • Her critique of militarism, partly from experiences in Korea, such as seeing the many U.S. military bases in Korea • her connections with black feminists in Boston, including writing a statement as the Combahee River Collective (which became incredibly important) • her work in Palestine • her thoughts on freedom and connection as intertwined Angela Davis: • How she did not think of herself as a feminist early on and why • How she thought of feminism as a middle-class white thing that wasn’t addressing all women’s needs • her work with the Communist Party and Black Panther Party • her work with other women of color feminists • her experience with a co-teacher in women’s studies who said the blues should not be discussed in a women’s studies class • her work challenging racialized mass incarceration • how some use the term “intersectionality” without seeing how it grew from grassroots feminist organizing Himani Bannerji: • Her early experiences in India, amidst much political upheaval • How she was influenced by U.S. feminists while in India • How in Canada she developed spaces with other immigrant women of color, doing poetry and the arts as well as teaching • how it has become “unfashionable” to many to speak of patriarchy or class oppression, even as these continue to impact people • How she sees elements of fascism in current U.S. politics Minnie Bruce Pratt: • • • • • • • • • Early years in segregated white supremacist South Her voting experience How/why she values what she has learned in working with women of color How coming out impacted her life experiences Her critiques of the “profit motive” and how it hurts people How she regards social movements for change as having saved her life How she sees consciousness as shaped by “material conditions” How she think ideals like “love makes a family” are incomplete as long as economic oppression is so crushing for so many people Quote from Minnie Bruce Pratt: “the real struggle is for consciousness, but as that is given to us out of the material moment – how to claim it and hold on to it with each other.” (p. 83)
