Let us consider this academic paper:
It considers former Gender Studies students and how they are getting in the work world. Here is the conclusion,
Ultimately, the high employability of the former students presents an ideological dilemma: they come to work within, and strive to be employed by, a labor market that is not feminist, but rather has implemented certain feminist issues: economic independence and labor force participation for individual women (Larner 2000). In their discussions about studies and work, this dilemma is present throughout: they want to get a good job, a job with a proper title, and at the same time they want to change the world and the very (capitalist) logics and mechanisms they strive to work within.
Let us try to figure out what they are saying here. Apparently lots of these women want jobs with fancy titles, fine salaries and such. Because, after all, who wouldn’t want that? Well the answer is: them. It seems that the labor market is not feminist and it is capitalistic. I am not quite sure what not feminist means, but we will get to that later. What they probably mean by capitalistic is this,
Indeed, and the results are typically paid for by customers that actually value them. So things that people are actually will to pay their own money for get done. This seems to be a rather good arrangement
As for the labor market not being feminist, this is an odd thing to decipher. It is true that all Western States have non gender discrimination laws, so that is not what this is about. It is also true that many have various forms of affirmative action, so that is probably not what it is about. Probably what it is about would be garden variety Marxism. The Gender Studies courses indoctrinated them with all sorts of Marxist silliness, told as absolute truth. When they hit the real world, probably some see how it works, and how Marxism does not work if you actually want to get things done. Furthermore, they maybe like the fancy title and fine salary; under Marxism all are equally miserable. That is, unless you are part of the elite, but how many of them can guarantee that they would part of that. Better to rail against the system, but not so much to actually bring it down. One can have their cake and eat it too. Which seems to be what all Feminists want, isn’t it?
