Gender Benders: Kim Kardashian - Feisty feminist or patriarchal puppet?
The main point of feminism is to change the way we see powerful women.
Remember how, even as recently as 2017, feminism was a four letter word, the big F, a “label” that most celebrities felt uncomfortable identifying with? We heard hundreds - nay, thousands of voices saying, “I’m not a feminist, no no no. I don’t hate men. I’m not a feminist, I just believe in equality”.
And let's face it, Kim Kardashian has never been an unwavering bastion of feminist ideals. But does that mean we can write her off as a casualty of the patriarchy?
This week on Gender Benders, we examine the debate around Kim K's feminism, and question the very premise of the debate.
