Description
Chantz Delgado October 29 , 2013 Journal Entry #9 In chapter 13 of No Turning Back, Freedman examines the beginning of women’s  literature. For instance, in 1974, four women decided to open up a bookstore devoted to  women. This proved as a success because it dove into the common norms that society  imposes on individuals. New words describing women require a fresh look at language. It  was known that many people encouraged boys to speak and express themselves while  doing the antithesis of that to women. Freedman also discusses the difference between  “Mr.,” “Ms.,” and “Mrs.” and why women are subjected as property with one of the  terms. This chapter really tries to comprehend the politics behind this new form of  language and it sheds light on some of the problems with society. “The Power of Collective Expression” by Kathleen Yep states that by  understanding personal issues about another group, they understand themselves better. It  is important to bring these issues to light. This is a way to broaden the knowledge to all  types of people.   In “Staging Activism: New York City Performing Artists as Cultural Workers” by  Amy Jo Goddard, she brings up three performing artists: Imani Henry, Susana Cook and  Diyaa Mildred Gerestant. They each produced work related to sexual, gender, ethnic and  class identities.  All of these actors are people of color who are considered queer or  lesbian. Imani Henry is a Caribbean transsexual activist. Susana Cook describes herself  as Argentine, butch, and lesbian.  Diyaa Mildred Gerestant is a drag king who performs  as men. It is obvious that their backgrounds and personal life is extremely different and  thus results in an interestin
