The original meaning of ‘sexism’ as defined by the CoE was as follows: ‘Sexism is linked to power in that those with power are typically treated with favour and those without power are typically discriminated against. Sexism is also related to stereotypes since discriminatory actions or attitudes are frequently based on false beliefs or generalisations about gender, and on considering gender as relevant where it is not.’
The new definition shifts the parameters in a striking way. It points to the possibility of total surveillance as part of the crusade against sexism. It describes sexism as: ‘Any act, gesture, visual representation, spoken or written words, practice or behaviour based upon the idea that a person or a group of persons is inferior because of their sex, which occurs in the public or private sphere.’
In dem Artikel wird angesprochen, dass sie zu weitgehend ist.
Ich finde es ganz interessant, dass die Definition nicht mehr auf Macht abstellt. Das ist erst einmal ein großer Fortschritt. Den damit fällt eigentlich der gesamte Feminismus darunter.
