new wave feminism

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

Sociological images: GENDERING AND RACIALIZING OCCUPATIONS
Interesting break down on how this image is an example of how gendered and racialized the workforce is - and how that affects who has access to what professions.

The notice in Spanish isn’t a translation of the one about the hostess job; rather, it announces that two people are needed as dishwashers. It shows the way that particular positions within a workplace are often associated with certain groups, and how organizational policies may reinforce occupational segregation by sex or race/ethnicity. The role of greeting and seating customers is explicitly gendered as a hostess, while the language difference will channel applicants into different jobs. These types of practices are one part of the process that channels individuals into different positions in the workplace, both by restricting access to information about jobs and providing subtle messages to potential applicants about which positions are the best fit for them.
