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...

HOW TO LOSE YOUR VIRGINITY is the new documentary by Therese Shechter, director of the award-winning and provocative I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST.

Investigating father/daughter purity balls, million-dollar virginity auctions and the search for the mythic hymen, Shechter poses two compelling questions: Why does virginity still hold such importance in an otherwise hyper-sexualized American society? And does virginity actually exist, or is it just a social construct created to keep the girls in line?

I always found purity balls to be … interesting, to say the least. 

But then again, I always find grand gestures by people with lots of money unnecessary.
