It Just Hit Me!
Posted December 2, 2010on:
I was just sitting on my bed watching an interview of Chris Rock on The Late Show after giving up on my final pitch. I just couldn’t come up with a topic that was specific and interesting enough to do a project on, until the last two minutes of this video (below). When I heard what Chris Rock had to say about Oprah, it just hit me! Is Chris Rock trying to say that Oprah is a feminist?I sat back back and started to think, hard. Does oprah really convey feminist ideas? Does she empower women in a feminist way? Has she ever talked about feminism?
No doubt Oprah is one of the most powerful woman in America and she does deal with a lot of women issues such as weight loss, sex and relationships, beauty and abuse. Although men can also fit into almost all these categories , Oprah seems to target women much more. But does this in any way prove that Oprah could be a feminsit? Maybe she does what she does because she has the power. I think no one deals with women issues better than her and I believe she realizes that. Empowering women especially through the media, which is run under a patriarchal society, requires A LOT of power. Oprah has that power!
