This class has been an eye opener for me in terms of feminist issues. I usually hesitated on discussing about feminist issues with family members and friends because I did not have good knowledge of feminism and feminist movement. You can only correct people when you have a good knowledge of something, now that I have taken this class I can correct people when they are wrong towards feminist issues and feminism. I learnt a lot of from this class through the readings, blogs, tracking the issues, and the agendas. Also i liked when we discussed the readings as a whole or in the groups. One of my favorite readings was the egg and the sperm by Emily Martin. This reading made me think in a different perspective, a perspective that I would not have thought of. Many of the stereotypes the author mentioned from the science side were things that I never thought of as stereotypes; they were developed in us as normal since grade school and therefore got adapted to them. Even though there are things that I did not agree with her. Everything was normal for me since I have been taking a lot of science classes and dealt with this topic but never thought of it from this perspective.
The blog has been a great experience since I have never blogged before and I learned a lot from it. One problem I had with blog was getting use to it and posting things which were never easy for me. I would post a comment and it would not show therefore making me post it more than once. Other than that I had a great experience and enjoyed the class. I would suggest for the next students to keep up with the work and know when things are due because you might find yourself behind and. First few weeks would be confusing getting to know how to blog at the beginning will make things easy as you'll be using the blog the most.
