Feminist Pedagogy

Listen. Speak. Empower. fem

Feminist pedagogy embraces forms of identification with age, class, race, sexuality, disability, and more. However, the unique history of feminism rooted in women’s issues should not be disconnected from the pedagogy. A classroom employing this pedagogy is student-centered and collaborative. Students, along with the instructor, question power and agency. Power structures, and even emotions, are evaluated as social constructions. Corporealities and disability studies illuminate bodily expressions. Most importantly, instructors empower students and students empower themselves and empower one another. Listening is just as significant as contributing.
