Being enrolled in Women, Culture and Power has allowed me to better understand what it means to strive to become an feminist. I myself have had trouble with being an conscious feminist and knowing that it does not mean to only like or claim only the aspects you want to but being knowledgeable of it all. Learning what gender means to me, identifying and openly expressing my sexuality, knowing my standpoints and location and grasping the effects of how media and culture influence everyday living has helped me become an more aware feminist especially in this complex and diverse world we live in. One thing I will always remember from this course is the Dreamworlds: Sex and Power in Music Videos the influence that media has on the masses is just crazy to me and made me realize what I need to stop consuming when it comes to media.
