Amazon Feminism is an illustration of a growing separation of Anarcha Feminism, 3rd wave feminism, as well as Riot Grrrl. It is best described as appearing in the year 1990 by means of the scripts of Camille Paglia. Historical disparagement may anticipate uncovering more instances of Amazon feminism in the writings prior to 1990.
Amazon feminism is basically related to physical sameness and is against to sex role pigeonholes and inequity against females based on suppositions that females are made-up to look or conduct themselves as if they are submissive, fragile, and physically powerless.
In order to cover the whole spectrum of implication that has been accredited to the word Amazon feminist, some facts are given below:
An associate of a race of women combatants as attributed in mythology and folklore
A giant, physically powerful "masculine" female; virago
A woman hero
A woman combatant or commanding and authoritative female
A woman with a tough and powerfully built body
The standards of boldness envisioned and articulated in a female form
An Amazon feminist discards the idea that there are some specific characteristics, personality traits or interests that are intrinsically mannish (or womanish), and defends and discovers a vision of daring womanhood. Amazon feminism maintains and commemorates women who accomplish and articulate intellectual and physical competence, for instance, female power athletes, martial arts performers, women in military, girls in combat, firefighters, women police force, lumberjacks, power lifters, boxers, etc.
The self reliance and physical power demonstrated by these females appeal to a substantial group of males. Representing the appeal of these Amazon feminists, several of these men take part in competitions of physical power and muscular talent by wrestling women bodybuilders and other powerful women champions. One of the most well-known rulers among the Amazon feminists was Hippolyta, who was kept under lock and key by Hercules as one of his seven responsibilities. Hippolyta called her combatants and they wrestled and defeated Hercules and his army.
Amazon Feminism could as well be connected with extremes vision, for instance, the SCUM proposal which supported an aggressive chaotic revolution to generate an all female culture. Furthermore, a number of people disparage it as being anti feminist, owing to its association to Camille Paglia and anti men owing to its link with Valerie Solanas.
As illustrated in the scripts of Camille Paglia, an Amazon Feminist never opposes the masculine inclinations. Amazon Feminist is in the quest of true gender egalitarianism through physical power, not the endorsement of meandrous rhetoric.
