I had some questions in regards to women and feminism and I was wondering about what everyone thought about female unity and there are some points in particular that I'd love to get opinions on, if you guys don't mind sharing? :)
1. Do you think that men in general
have a male unity? Aside from a few exceptions, do they seem to have a certain respect and comradery for each other?
Some people believe that they do and they believe it comes from sports, recognizing that they're all different yet make up a team together: Some are stronger, some are faster, some are better at improvisation, etc. They all have their different positions and responsibilities, thus maintaining a uniqueness while also building dependence and trust with other men on the same team and working together.
2. Do you think that females are capable of a similar "unity" and how do you think it can be achieved? (Sports or other activity etc?) Or do you think females have already achieved a "female unity"?
3. Do you think women treat each other well enough, are too divided or need/choose to be divided etc?
4. In regards to feminism, do you think it has helped or harmed female unity? Do you think it has done too much/not enough/exactly enough?
5. Do you think that feminism is too adaptable based on culture and perception which makes it hard for feminism to unite women? (i.e. when some women believe they are supporting feminism but others say they are not representing feminism etc.)
6. Do you think a more globalized, unified and specific outline of causes and positions for feminism would strengthen the overall movement and unite, as well as, attract more women? (As well as eliminate confusion about which positions are in line with feminism and which aren't?)
If this already exists and I am ignorant to it, then I completely apologize and would love to see a source to update myself.
7. Do you think feminism and feminists should accept all versions and variations of feminism, in order to unite and represent more women? (Supporting all women, i.e. pro-choice and pro-life feminists etc.)
Any other relevant thoughts are totally welcome and I ask that we show some female unity here by not insulting each other for sharing opinions. I would really appreciate us all being respectful and open-minded here with open "ears". I just want to learn more about what feminism means to different women around the world and why it isn't as globally stable and consistent as one might expect it to be.
PS This is not to dissuade any male members from giving their opinions at all, male opinions are just as welcome. I pose this question towards women merely because it is mainly involving women.
