Lecture Notes

If we were to encapsulate this in diagram form, we could use our same diagram. The only difference would be that ideology is replaced by the more specific "gender" ideology. The basic approach is the same, but critical feminist theories pay particular attention to the ways that gender works as an ideology. Critical feminist theories might focus on the ways that sports encourage masculine characteristics, or the ways that female athletes are sexualized.
