Gender is a topic of conversation due to the recent meteoric rise of the transgender movement in the US. People are now talking about what it means to be female and what it means to be male. With prominent and inspiring transgender figures such as Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox and Janet Mock flying the flag for women who have transitioned, the notion of femininity has never been more relevant.
A man’s world
Many attribute the wars and inequalities of the world to patriarchy. And if they don’t blame men for them, then they at least cite the subjugation of women as an example of the kind of problems that they’re talking about. But the feminist movement has seen a rapid resurgence implying that it is back with a vengeance. Women are reaffirming their sexuality in empowering campaigns throughout the world. They are taking back ownership of what they wear, how they behave, how they present themselves and how they live their lives.
Freud changed the way we saw sex and removed the dogma and mystification from it to make it accessible and acceptable to the public. In the past women were always hesitant to embrace their sexuality because of the double standards which were applied to them. Now they are owning their desires and needs and honouring them. Whether they purchase luxury lingerie for themselves, or decide to end relationships no longer fulfilling them physically, they are learning that they too can have the power to control their own bodies and to use them how they want. Femininity is no longer equated with weakness. There is some way to go, but with strong and empowering female pioneers, perhaps we can return to the days when the Goddess was revered and no gender was higher than the other.
