Feminism & Pop Culture are intertwined! Pop culture influences feminism, and feminism influences pop culture. In this class, we will discuss several feminist theories and how they can be applied to analyze pop culture, including movies, TV, music, YouTube, social media apps like TikTok, and more.

Students will understand the basics of feminist theory and be able to apply those to the pop culture texts of their choice.
I have been an English professor for 10 years and have taught on diversity and feminist theory in numerous classes. On Outschool, I teach courses on Feminism & pop culture.

I teach from an intersectional feminist perspective, which means that I view gender as just ONE aspect of the world where equality has not yet been attained. We may address additional areas of social injustice, including racism, classism, ableism, and more. I also teach from a non-binary perspective. Although I periodically use gendered language including "boys" and "girls," I also use language like "all genders" and avoid promoting a gender binary. Transgender and non-binary children should feel welcome in this course, and we will do our best to use gender-inclusive language.
