Gatsby: Feminist Stimulus

I wrote this a while ago. I still stand by it, though I want to ensure that students are introduced to Feminism in a broader sense and also begin to recognise a Patriarchal Agenda when they come across it.

I teach currently in a boys’ school and find that this area of criticism is the hardest for them to explore. Cultural contexts are producing closed minds?

This Powerpoint begins to explore aspects of Feminist Critique in The Great Gatsby. Once again it is developed from Lois Tyson’s Critical Theory Today.
