I choose to do preform Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" because it sends a message that you should be living for more than the material things in life and the singer express how I feel love should flow.
What is something you learned about patriarchy and what is something you would like to change about what you learned?
Patriarchy is defined as greater male than female social power and status, emerged with the development of new roles in more complex societies. I learned that patriarchy is believed to started in 8000-3000 BC when when early agriculture yielded a surplus and the beginnings of militarisation helped males to seize control of the surplus and the main producers of labour power. If I'm to only change one thing about the patriarchal society is the saying "boys will be boys". It's a damaging catchphrase because from a young age a boy's inappropriate/inexcusable is justified because he is a boy and his the right to do so while their counterparts aren't. Girls and woman in a patriarchal society are given so many rules and stipulations that cater in favor of men/boys.
I confirm I have read and agree to the Official Rules
