When I first came into this class, I expected feminism to be men vs. women. Now that the class is coming to an end, I have learned that feminism goes beyond that. It incorporates racism, ageism, ableism, and much more. With those in mind, I have realized how privileged I am to be getting a higher education and how "abled" I am. So overall, I believe feminism is beyond men and women, feminism is the fight for justice in every way possible.
This class has also changed my opinion on what "justice" is. Before, I was completely for the death penalty because I thought it brought those we suffered from the person "justice." However, after our class discussions and readings, I've realized that this form of justice is not spiritually or ethically correct. The only way to achieve a sense of peace or justice is by incorporating Leela Fernandez's spirituality; love, compassion, forgiveness, and harmony.
What I first thought coming into the class:
For the Laughs.
