Research project

Exploring the past, present, and future of feminism and its entanglement with consumer culture.

Understanding the relationship Western feminism has had with consumer culture throughout the 20th century and into the contemporary era, and how ‘woman’ has been mediated and constructed within the consumer sphere. Exploring both how feminism has attempted to break away and critique capitalism, but also periods where feminist practices have rested upon women’s monetary liberation and consumer freedom (which is seen as liberation) will allow for a further understanding of feminism today and its future.
