I'd like to get some recommendations on the basics of feminism, especially as it might relate to things a dad can do to help his daughters prepare for and deal with sexism in society and also do his part in understanding the world and making it a better place for women (and by extension all people).
So, I would say I've always been a feminist-sympathizer, but wouldn't call myself a feminist because it would imply some level of understanding which I don't feel I have. Like its one of those things I've always felt like any good person *should* understand and support, but like so so so many things I should do in life, I haven't done.
But when I see things like the recent post about Emily Graslie's video about sexism
, to pick just one example, I'm shocked at what women have to put up with and I think this is something I shouldn't just let slide and muddle along in my ignorance and complacency. And, of course, being a dad to a couple of daughters whom I love more than anything else in the world just heightens the stakes.
So, if you could recommend some basic books, videos, or other resources which would be aimed at helping a well-meaning but somewhat ignorant guy get up to speed on this topic, and also examine and address his own attitudes and beliefs and behaviors that might be unwittingly supporting it, I'd appreciate it.
