The mother studies class at MOM also had an activist/feminist slant to it, which is something very different for me. I remember the first day at MOM when one of the interns said “Hi guys,” and Joy quickly corrected her and said we do not use the term “guys.” That same day she also refused to use the term history, instead favoring the term herstory. I remember thinking that day that Joy was going a little overboard, and maybe she was, but as the classes went on I found myself becoming more and more of a “feminist.” I look at everything a little different now, from situations in movies and books to comments those around me make.
