Feminism to post feminism

  1. 1. Feminism to post- feminism.
  2. 2. Definition of Feminism: The advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes
  3. 3. Feminism in the music industry: • There are many songs in the 90’s and on that are about women and their power • Queen Latifa ‘U.N.I.T.Y’, Salt ‘n’ Pepper ‘Ain’t Nothin but a She Thing’, Spice Girls ‘Wanna Be’, Alicia Keys ‘A Womans Worth’ • Pink ‘Stupid Girls’, Lily Allens ‘Hard Out Here’ and ‘22’, Christina Aguilera ‘Can’t Hold Us Down’
  4. 4. Beyonce as a Feminist icon? • Some of Beyonce songs in the past have shown that she is a feminist • These songs include: Destiny’s Child ‘Survivor’ and ‘Independent Woman’, Beyonce’s ‘Run The World (Girls)’ • She portrays the image in her songs that women are strong and don’t need men • However her recent album ‘Beyonce’ has portrayed the image that it is important to be what a man wants
  5. 5. Beyonce’s Beyonce Album • Her songs such as ‘Partition’ and ‘Blow’ encourage the fact that womens bodies are at the hands of a man. • Many of her music videos for some of her previous empowering songs have Beyonce in skimpy clothing as well. • So is she a feminist or not?
  6. 6. Flawless • Her song ‘Flawless’ which is on the most recent album features a section of a feminist speech by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, showing her support for the feminist movement • However, the song itself is about Beyonce being ‘flawless’ instead of what her previous songs were about being loved ‘flaws and all’ • The video yet again, shows her wearing very short shorts but she’s also wearing a buttoned up shirt, covering most of her up. Feminist or not?
  7. 7. Overall • Feminism was very popular in songs from the 90’s and have continued to be popular now • There are many songs that have promoted feminism. • Beyonce was seen as a strong feminist leader but now many people wonder where this leader has gone
