POLITICAL IDENTITIES OF WOMEN: TRAUMA, MOTHERHOOD, AMD EMPOWERMENT IN FEMINIST NARRATIVES
Themes: Literature, Theater, Feminist Theory, Motherhood, Trauma, Language, Testimony, Memory Studies, Diversity, Race, World Literature, Comparative Studies, Sexuality and Identity Studies
2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the protests of 1968, the moment in which several grassroots movements converged in their fights against social injustices and discrimination of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. From the civil rights movement to the anti-Vietnam War movement, the women’s movement and the environmental movement, the events of the Global Sixties were the culmination of a broad wave of activism that continued into the mid 1970s and beyond. This period was also paramount in reshaping the role of “hyphenated Americans.” Notions of citizenship were expanded and democratic principles and practices re-envisioned, pushed in new directions.
