Feminism is a constant struggle
Feminism advocates changes in social relationships and leads to the emancipation of women and men by eliminating hierarchy and inequality between both sexes. However, it should be borne in mind that feminism is a conceptual system based on research and the study of the conditions that women, politics, education and at work live daily. From here come the famous feminist theories that are a system of women’s conditions, their role in society and the different ways of achieving their study of liberation and when we talk about liberation we refer to living in a society where women are treatedOn equal terms, in the same way it seeks how to change the current situation they face.
The appearance of movements with revolutionary airs linked to a feminist theory is not a change of fortuitous thought, but on the contraryform the egalitarian and rationalist ideologies that were the main basis of the Enlightenment;reason why, it began to be the center of any type of resistance. Taking into account, feminist movements currently represent the voice of many women who yearn for a change in the thought of society that for years has framed in machismBiopoder has established an approach within the personal development of all human beings.
In this way, the groups of women fighting from reason and seek a more equitable society begin to make the rein of their own decisions or ideals, which aims to achieve that objective trigger of an underlying system in which it is contextualized. Clearly, these movements are still pointed out by the remaining part of society, since it is evident that not all people will agree with the way of acting on them, but it is important to highlight these types of changes that generate a certain introspective analysis inThe formation of any community that is based on equality between men and women, causing in future generations the responsibility of achieving struggles with social approach to always achieve a common good over the individual.
Feminist activism severely confronts the naturalization of male identity, which is a dynamic process of constant redefinition since it does not constitute the true essence this producing spaces for questioning and deconstruction, because it is something complex to talk about a system or a movement or a movementantipatrialcal;The recognition of equal rights does not mean leading to an exchange of roles or simply positions, since it is currently criticized in a frequently criticized, with arguments that there is no equality but to be above man and in itself defining us as superiors, this being a totally failed argument, the novelty of equality does not lies in the arrival of a unisex world, but in the search to obtain the same opportunities, responsibilities in working and political life without neglecting what defines a woman.
Feminist theories that are present throughout the inquiries that are carried out following gender inequality, the approach to the bonds of power or politics, in sexuality, in the economy and in the different irregularities must be taken into accountwithin the social world. Because today’s society poses different questions of why feminism is a way of life, a form of struggle, a form of expression towards everything that affects women in large bases, not only to think a wrong idea thatFeminism seeks to victimize female gender, an idea of equality and equity must be raised, because these two concepts can be taken as one, while they are completely different, like all feminist movements that have arisen so far, observeas happened to be a topic of which one could not speak until it causes an impact at the universal level thus generating recognition towards women and the role it develops within society, since this was not taken into account.
Feminism is a movement that has taken strength in most countries over the years, in order to raise awareness of humanity about equal rights between men and women and eradicate that outdated idea in which the male gender prevailson the female and that this can exercise a type of domination;This movement seeks equality in all political, social, economic and cultural aspects. It does not intend to demonstrate that some gender is superior to another, simply that we are all trained to perform the same tasks.
Next, we will take into account the case of: The day free of Icelandic women since this was an inspiration to initiate this research.
This event took place in Iceland in the year of 1970, a women’s strike was contemplated by the feminist group called Redstockings (Red Socks). In 1975 the UN decided to appoint the same as the International Year of Women, for the same reason different female groups formed a committee together with a UN representative with the purpose of organizing the Women’s Congress, they met to discuss topics such as theAffectation at the socioeconomic and political level which had to face day by day for the fact to be women, so they decided that on October 24, the United Nations Day that would be taken the day to protest and show a society dominated byMen the importance of the work that each woman did.
Flyers were distributed to the general public, in which they appointed the relevance of women in society and highlight different points of inequality that they had to face, this in order to raise awareness and that more women joined the cause, and with thisheading to a modern society taking into account the need for nurseries as something fundamental so that women could grow academically, labor and socially. This movement was so shocking that in the following elections a woman named Vigdís Finnbogadóttir was running for the elections of the year 1980 where her competition was just men and that woman was the winner with 33.6 % and later she was reelected three times.
Everything has a story, a beginning and an end, in order to understand the female pronouncement until today, it is necessary to understand events and in the same way the most important moments to be able to deduce the issues that the new feminist groups are taking into account. We all know that since we have use of women and that you are since they woke up from a long dream they have decided to fight for what they deserve, for having good living conditions, for respect and love towards themselves, and for the newgenerations, therefore you should not forget everything they had to live and endure for having the "liberation" of women within a society.
