Are there any anti-male views taught in women's studies curriculums?
This paper contains a critique of the types of textbooks studied in WS and is a great (but very long) read:
"Women’s Studies at UNC-Charlotte, as at the other campuses, asserts the “feminist” label right on its home page. Unlike most other programs in the arts or social sciences, women’s studies programs are free to pick this ideological bias, or “ism,” and shape all their courses around it, in a way that a political science department never could - at least not overtly. No such department could shape itself around some sort of inherent Marxism or fascism, for example. "
"The books tend to focus on the same litany of complaints and false assertions that the programs in general focus on: Women as victims of patriarchy, women as unequal to men in the workforce and as victims of a wage gap, and women as victims of male violence. The books encourage lesbianism, repre-sent marriage first and foremost as a perpetuator of male dominance, advance almost exclusively Marxist and proto-Marxist economic and social views, and fully omit discussing important female figures and movements that don’t fit the left-of-center, feminist category."
My wife took a WS class in college (when she was my girlfriend) and used to report back to me all of the ridiculous and anti-male statements her prof would make. I've heard countless examples since then of similar WS classroom anti-male sexism.
Why is a sexist & anti-male political faction allowed to operate on our college campuses?
