Feminism F.A.Q.s


Feminism FAQs Title Screen

Feminism F.A.Q.s is a series of short videos by Gender Focus editor Jarrah Hodge, designed to answer questions and tackle common myths about feminism. They’re aimed at people who are open-minded and respectful but may be hesitant to call themselves feminism because of negative stereotypes. They’re also designed as a resource for other bloggers and activists to have a fast and effective way of dealing with these types of F.A.Q.s.

Because the videos are designed to be less than 2:30 in order to be accessible, they generalize and will inevitably leave some things out. In some cases there may be feminists who disagree with my interpretations. I hope is that the videos will prompt even more questions and engage feminists and potential future feminists in respectful dialogue.
