Exam 2
Academic Conduct: Use your own words, keep your eyes on your own work, and be sure to avoid
even any behavior or work that might look like cheating or plagiarism. Cite any sources fully,
whether you are quoting or paraphrasing or simply borrowing a general idea from a source. That
may be a source in one of our readings, or one located on the internet, or that you have borrowed
from a classmate – any idea that comes from a source outside your own head must be fully cited.
Failure to give appropriate credit (even by accident, such as from working too quickly and
forgetting to put source information into your paper) is considered plagiarism by Moravian’s
academic conduct policies. Any academic misconduct may result in a “0” for the exam and/or an
“F” for the course.
Strive for excellent writing, clear expression of ideas, strong explanations, insight, and good grasp
of the meaning of the videos and text. Remember that the essay grades are based on the quality of
writing as well as the “content.”
As with your exams, pretend that your reader will be someone pretty unfamiliar with the
interviewees and concepts involved. Don’t assume that they will know the “jargon,” explain things
fully.
Remember that you need not agree with the text and interviewers. Your job is to engage
sympathetically to grasp their ideas, reasoning, and visions on their own terms, and to enter into
conversation with the text, stating your own positions and reasoning for them. As the required
components guide below notes, you also must do another thing – consider a potential objection to
your view and respond to it with fresh ideas.
Note: in Exam 2, the questions called on you to summarize main points from the
author/interviewee’s stories and thinking. In this essay, you must go beyond this summary of their
ideas and story, to synthesize and relate across these stories – explaining the meaning and/or
themes occurring, and to respond with your own ideas and reasoning.
1. Choose one or two of the feminist scholar-activists featured so far in Feminist Freedom Warriors,
name the person and explain the following:
• how/why each sees critiques of racism, capitalism, imperialism, homophobia, transphobia
(whichever each focuses upon) as crucial to feminism (I’ll call it coalitional, deeply
intersectional feminism).
• how each imagines liberation/positive change, and their reasons why
For each of these points, respond with your own views on the subject:
• Do you share that specific person’s (or persons’ – plural) view that feminism does well to be
deeply intersectional? Giving your reasoning on why or why not?.
• Do you share that specific person’s (or persons’ – plural) view of liberation/positive
change? Why or why not?

2. Choose one or two of the authors and a meaningful quote (or related quotes) or
concept/theoretical point, develop it, explain it, and apply it – whether to a situation they
describe or one you see in your life or in the world today generally. (For example, you
might consider Minnie Bruce Pratt’s quote: “the real struggle is for consciousness, but as
that is given to us out of the material moment – how to claim it and hold on to it with
each other;” or with Mohanty and Carty’s words: What do they mean by “building
coalitions and solidarities across struggles” and why they see that as important; or with
Gloria Joseph’s line from the FFW preview video “People still think capitalism is
democracy.”)
Respond to the authors with your own views and reasoning (on the topics you have elaborated.)
3. Imagine a viewer and reader who might access the Feminist Freedom Warriors digital archive
and book, yet see it as irrelevant to them, or to the general population. For example, they might
think “many of these are the stories and ideas of women of color – or women from the Global
South, or lesbians, or activists, or women only, or people obsessed with politics – but these stories
have nothing to do with me and my world.”
Imagine such a viewer/reader and tell a brief story of how/why they might see the FFW stories as
irrelevant. Then explain how you might convince them – or others, resistant to seeing the general
value of FFW – that the stories and ideas from FFW may contribute something.
(If you wish you can do this part of the paper in the form of a letter to that person.)
4. Since many of us do not share the historical, theoretical, and cultural reference points of the
FFW, it may be hard to engage with their stories and ideas and connect with them. Offer lessons
and suggestions for others new to FFW to relate to it on a deep level. You may wish to describe
challenges you or others have experienced in engaging with the FFW, and what solutions you have
found to be helpful.
5. Relate the Feminist Freedom Warriors project to the Minnich text or to any of the videos we
have watched in class, such as Chimamanda Adichie’s TED talks “The Danger of a Single Story”
and “We Should All Be Feminists.” Explain at least three significant ways that the Feminist
Freedom Warrior project (or some element of it such as an interview or some points from the
introduction to the text) relate to one or more points in Minnich or in one of the Chimamanda
Adichie videos. In relation to each point, state whether you agree or disagree with these
perspectives, offering reasons on why or why not.
6. Offer your own narrative and ideas along the lines of the FFW authors – something of your
early experiences, and how you came to question injustices and develop critical consciousness,
your vision of feminism and liberation, and your vision for the future.
how it has become “unfashionable” to many to speak of patriarchy or class oppression, even as
these continue to impact people
• How she sees elements of fascism in current U.S. politics
• Some other significant point from their interview.
6. Minnie Bruce Pratt:









Early years in segregated white supremacist South
Her first voting experience
How/why she values what she has learned in working with women of color
How coming out impacted her life experiences
Her critiques of the “profit motive” and how it hurts people
How she regards social movements for change as having saved her life
How she sees consciousness as shaped by “material conditions”
How she thinks ideals like “love makes a family” are incomplete as long as economic
oppression is so crushing for so many people
Quote from Minnie Bruce Pratt: “the real struggle is for consciousness, but as that is given
to us out of the material moment – how to claim it and hold on to it with each other.”
Section II. 10 points each (25 word minimum)
7. From the “Preview” video to the Feminist Freedom Warriors Project, or from the Xeroxed essay
I handed out in class, “’Feminist Freedom Warriors’ Project Collects Conversations to Build
Global Solidarity,” or from the Introduction to the text, choose two important points to explain
and elaborate upon, for example, Gloria Joseph says “People still think capitalism is democracy.”
