Identitetspolitikkens Indtog: The Entry of Identity Politics

Thomas Allan Wedell-Wedellsborg

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project aims to discuss possible downsides and/or adaptations of the feminist movement’s forthcomings in relation to postmodern identity politics, and convey negative reactions to these within a Danish setting of debate, in light of actual gender equality issues. The point is both to understand mainstream feminist perspectives from a historical view of political aims in the women’s movement’s in relation to its inner tensions as well as problematize its identity politics from understandings of different critical receptions. Rather than simply project criticisms of modern day feminism as ‘patriarchal backlashes’ due to progress, the interest of the paper is to convey and question the groundings for the disagreement and criticism is, both in connection to critical insider and external critics of the movement. All limited to within the context of the surfaced surrounding Women's International Day, on March 8th and 7th as the selected dates in 2015 and 2016, as scope of the analysis in two of Denmark’s major newspapers.
