Foluke unpacks the impact of ‘male gaze’

There’s new tracks in the Gender Booth!

Here’s one from Foluke where she delves into how ‘male gaze’ has impacted her self concept.

A quick search on Wikipedia tell us that, “In feminist philosophy, the male gaze is the act of depicting the world and women in the visual arts and in literature from a masculine and heterosexual point of view, which present women as objects of male pleasure.” How wonderful to unpack and dump that way of conceiving of ourselves out of our brains!
