When I started this blog just a few minutes ago, I wasn't sure how to write about Feminism because I never really got the grasp of the subject/idea in the seminar, it's a very flimsy idea to me that I know very little about, and every time I think about it I remember a quote from the Guardian which I've included below.
“ They don’t see the wood for the trees and everything has to be viewed from this feminist point of view. I know women have suffered and I think it’s great that people stand up for women’s rights but the problem with feminists is that they somehow consider women to be superior beings. And in the end, they just want to be men anyway. They want to do men’s work. ”
-Vivienne Westwood for the Guardian 2008

Cindy Sherman for me is the only Feminist photographer who's work I like, I can see what she's getting at and I can see what she's trying to convey, a lot of her photographs feature her in the kitchen cooking and getting ready for 'her' man all things that woman only used to be known for and I can see how her work represents Feminism and for me I think that's fantastic, I can see how she changed views in photography and how simple things like using herself as the model and setting up these scenarios make her so famous in the Photography world, I really like her feminist work.
