Communications and language discrepancies in feminism and traditional gender relations discourse

 

 

 

Abstract

Molepo, M. 2011. Communications and language discrepancies in feminism and traditional gender relations discourse. Mabutheto Literature: Ga Molepo

Current feminist discourse seems to suggest that“women are often abused in the name of culture and tradition” and in order to deal with this the woman should be liberated for empowerment. On further analysis and in contrast to the aforesaid phrase, there is also a tendency to associate the man (as an object) with such ill treatment to such an extent that there is also an intention to liberate both the man and the woman towards a solution. Thirdly, there is much evidence in literature to suggest that the activists of the feminism theory (in all categories) approach emphasis with a different, somehow distant, cultural and social context (language, communication and way of life prime agents) from the cultural and social context of those they purport to be the targeted victims belonging to structures perceived to be sectors of perpetration. Once again, traditional communities and their way of life seem to be questionable prime suspects. But what does the feminist theory say about the thinking of women such as Mma Masedi and the meaning they attach to certain practices that could be perceived as advancing the cultural, linguistic and religious rights of women as illustrated in the excerpt?
