Drowning in the Family Tree: Still Feminist Despite the Metaphors

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Speaking to _Not My Mother’s Sister_, Astrid Henry’s study of feminism’s mother/daughter metaphor, this essay explores consciousness in context of feminist theory. Born into a working class family in 1964, I am neither the Second Wave’s daughter nor the Third Wave’s mother. This essay revisits pre-school gendering learned through housework, television French lessons, Jack LaLanne exercise, and trips to the local five and dime, recalls my click of consciousness, and questions the metaphor’s power to cast me as a mother-figure to young feminists.
