First, identify what contemporary feminism is. You can learn about the difference between reformist and revolutionary feminist movements in the reading by Moni; Contemporary feminists are revolutionary in thinking and want to put an end to all institutions of oppression (capitalism, patriarchy, neoliberalism, etc.) Then, talk about how Contemporary feminist movements and organizations (i.e. Emancipation of Our Bodies: Latin American and Caribbean Thirteenth Feminist Encounter for Latin America, Native American Women′s Health Education Resource Center, Tranfeminst Manifesto, #MeToo: Omission of People With Disabilities) have expanded upon and shaped the conservation surrounding current discussions on sexual and reproductive rights (Bodily autonomy).
Talk about how they are using revolutionary feminist principles that call for the inclusivity of all marginalized peoples (trans, disabled, women, colored, poor, etc.) in the fight to claim ownership of one′s body. *** Here′s a quote from the Latin American and Caribbean Thirteenth Feminist Encounter for Latin America reading that I think sums up the modern definition of bodily autonomy: ″ Heternormativity, racism, sexual and social division of labour, economic exploitation, the devaluation of bodies and their energies, their reduction to mere carriers of working forces or of invisible work (reproductive or carework, without economic and social recognition), the repudiation of disability—these are all expressions of bodies seen as territories for others, alien and distant, putting in question whether our bodies are our own″. (638) Talk about how these contemporary feminist ideologies and concepts on bodily autonomy are similar and/or different than past concepts of revolutionary feminism (Young Lords Party/1970, Women of LaRaza, Double Jeopardy (1969), Third World Gay Liberation (1970), Lesbian Avengers (1993), and Wages for Housework (1974)). What do these connections say about how these issues and ideas continue to be discussed and debated?Have there been any changes in how these topics are discussed? Is there new information about these topics and where the Bodily Autonomy feminist movement is at now?
Finally, talk about how the struggle to obtain bodily autonomy is still ongoing (right to have/abstain from an abortion, right to universal health care, equal pay, right to freedom of sexual expression, wages for reproductive care work, etc.). You can use outside sources to highlight current 2021 issues of bodily autonomy that society has still yet to recognize).
If you really want to learn about contemporary feminist concepts of bodily autonomy, Its recommended you at least read and write about what the Emancipation of Our Bodies: Latin American and Caribbean Thirteenth Feminist Encounter for Latin America and Native American Women′s Health Education Resource Center said on the matter. Throughout the paper, you have to mention themes and the ideas of intersectionality and inclusive that these readings bring up
