Description

Feminism refers to political, cultural, and economic movements aimed at establishing greater rights, legal protection for women and/or women's liberation. Feminism includes some of the sociological theories and philosophies concerned with issues of gender difference. It is also a movement that campaigns for women's rights and interests. Nancy Cott defines feminism as the belief in the importance of gender equality, invalidating the idea of gender hierarchy as a socially constructed concept. Feminists are persons of either sex, or females only (in which case males may be profeminists), who believe in feminism.

Good Idea, Bad Execution

:
I really enjoy the idea behind this application. I think having an accessible list of feminists throughout history would be beneficial to a number of people, particularly those who take Women and Gender Studies classes or are involved in activism. Unfortunately, this application only includes feminists of the first wave (pre-suffrage). It doesn't even include some mainstream feminists like Gloria Steinem, or some of the more well-known in feminist/womanist circles like Audre Lorde. I think this is an absolute shame, and also contributes to the notion that there is nothing left to be done for women's rights and that feminism is a thing of the past. It's very much a modern movement. As much as I enjoy reading about historical feminists, I feel that the app should also include modern ones.

I was so excited upon seeing something like this on the iTunes store. Really, we need something to help combat all of the incredibly sexist apps available, but unfortunately "Feminists" does not do that. Look up some third wave feminists, folks. We're doing a lot of really cool things, and certainly should be represented by something other than this poorly executed app fronted by an image of a smiling, blonde, white woman.

A bit lacking

:
Pretty good, but missing some very notable historical feminists like, Ida B. Wells and Margaret Sanger. Good start, however. Just needs more.
