Feminism: Going Deeper


Feminists aim to eliminate the composed nature of international relations in general. The main problem feminism has is that it blames men for the infliction of chaos and anarchy in society. This is hard to grasp because the world is predominantly male-based and many people cannot conceptualize the idea that by nature men are inherently the problem.

Simone de Beauvoir said, “representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their point of view, which they confuse with the truth.”

This is a problematic ideology because it dives within the states pinning males vs. females in domination for power. It gives the ideology that men are mainly in power and women are just subordinates to males.

Professor Harvard Swane agrees with the statement, “let women rule” because in his data he concluded that states that have more female power have statistically lower levels of corruption. Yet what professor Swane fails to conclude is that many of these more peaceful countries are not as wealthy or powerful.

Many people feel more protected within a state knowing they live in a wealthier and more powerful place, hence why immigration to wealthier and more powerful countries gives the ideology that it is a safer and better place even though unemployment rates and crime are very much still problematic.

Coming back to the ideology of men vs. women it is expressed above that men run wealthier and more powerful states than females discrediting women in power. So from a perspective looking beyond ideology feminism is internally flawed at its core; it is a movement for equality, not a pragmatic outlook that can run a state.
