Discussion Questions

1. "It is important that we do not necessarily privilege gender over other bases of oppression." Before reading the articles in class, did you think of feminism as racist or otherwise biased? Why do you think gender issues often seem to take precedence over others?

2. In Minority Women and the Experiences of Migration arranged marriages are discussed. What are your thoughts on arranged marriages? What positive and negative aspects can you think of compared to our western marriage traditions?
