Sorry this is late! I had forgotten until reminded in class today!
Political issues are all around us. Feminism is a political issue. Any type of freedom or fight for equality will fall under the category of political. Politics is a process where groups make decisions. Taking a look at feminism under this light, feminists create groups in order to try and sway society's current viewpoints. Feminists fight for an anti-sexism world; this is stated in bell hooks' book Feminism is for Everybody. Majority of our world engages within politics. It entitles a person to make opinions for different issues and stand up for what they believe in. People take sides and come to numerous conclusions about each and every issue. On the issue of feminism, this is the case as well. Confusion comes into play when people are unaware of what feminism even is. There are many people who have the wrong impression of what feminism is, or else in some instances, they are just lacking any information on the subject as a whole.
In Feminism is for Everybody, the very first chapter is dedicated to looking at feminism as a political issue. The end of the chapter presents the idea that there needs to be a more clear definition of the term feminism. In that sense, I agree that there needs to be a better explanation for what feminism is in order for people to be able to figure out the politics of it and engage in working towards a movement. I think titling something as political is very easy because of the term being so broad. Political issues tie in with many different categories, one of them being feminism.
