UConn Professor Cristina Mogro-Wilson expressed her dismay over the lack of young females who don't feel that they are oppressed in American society.
Mogro-Wilson conducted a study of 118 students, 94 percent of which were female, who are part of a Masters in Social Work program. According to the survey, a vast majority of respondents said that they don't believe "discrimination and subordination" are "salient issues in women's lives."
Mogro-Wilson makes clear that the respondent's overwhelming responses did nothing to open her eyes to the reality she may personally overestimate the level of oppression experienced by American women.
Instead, she argues that the results of the survey indicate that American women need to be "better educated" on the issues that they face in society today.
She concludes that a more expansive inclusion of feminism in social work education particularly around current and historical forms of gender-based discrimination as well as the role of collective action in gaining gender equality.
In other words, these students need more indoctrination.Posted by Tim Ciccotta on August 10, 2018
