#Tulane students and I have been studying issues of contemporary women in US media and politics all semester.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
We read & discussed Lawless and Fox. It Still Takes a Candidate: Why Women Don’t Run for Office to get broad picture of women in US politics
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
To get a grounding in the history of US women's movements we read Nancy Cott's The Grounding of Modern Feminism.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
To explore contemporary "Third Wave" feminism we read the edited volume. Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today's Feminisms
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
For a grounding in gender and media studies we read Susan Douglas' Where the Girls Are: Growing Up Female w/ the Mass Media
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Then I did the unthinkable and assigned my own book, @SisterCitizen for our week on the politics of black women in the United States.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
After that we read Gloria Anzaldua. Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, to explore Latina political identity.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
We then challenged our definitions of "woman" by reading Kate Bornstein. Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women and the Rest of Us
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Dorothy Roberts' Killing the Black Body guided our conversation on reproductive rights.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
We returned to a conversation about electoral politics with Rebecca Traister's Big Girls Don't Cry. A great analysis of 2008.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Last week we discussed women in local & state level offices and read research from scholars at Center for American Women in Politics (CAWP)
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
And now... we have read @JennPozner's #RealityBitesBack. In about 15 minutes we will start our discussion with Jenn. Feel free to follow!
