Feminism and Women's History

The Assignment: Podcast

"For this assignment, and using readings from class and from your own research, you will produce a 5-7 minute podcast segment that answers the question: What is Feminism? This podcast should use evidence to support your personal understanding of feminism but can also incorporate a variety of your lived experiences to help you articulate your ideas. Note: this podcast will be used as the basis of your research proposal/final project so make sure to incorporate significant research to help support your ideas!
