Each school will review the information in your SAR and create a financial aid package to offer you, detailed in an award letter they will send out. Once you have your financial aid award letter from your prospective school or schools, if the funds offered are not enough to cover education costs, you have the option of applying for state funded grants as merit-based grants.
Merit-based grants are a general term for any grant that requires you to meet specific standards to qualify. Where need-based grants are mainly based on income, merit-based grants are based on a combination of academic and income factors. State grants typically require that your income not exceed a fixed amount, but you must meet certain grade requirements too.
Forms for merit-based grants can usually be found on the website for your specific state. The application process entails sending in verification of your grade point average to the student aid commission of your state. You become eligible for a grant if your GPA is high enough. Make sure to carefully read all the directions for the grant application for your particular state and pay attention to deadlines, submitting all forms and information requested in a timely manner. Times have definitely changed where trade school is concerned.
Many more people are interested in pursuing careers in such diverse fields as electrical, HVAC, automotive, cosmetology, and Culinary Arts, to name a few. Now, as never before, financial aid as free grant money is readily available to those who seek degrees or certificates in vocational or technical trades. With some concentrated research, effort, and time, trade school students can procure the grants they need to fund a brighter future.

Chris Watts Parents of Colorado mom open up about daughter's murder Killer Colorado dad moved to out-of-state prison for 'safety' reasons Mistress of killer Colorado dad calls him 'disgusting' Colorado dad admits to killing wife — but not daughters — in chilling confession video A man is claiming he had a month-long affair with the Colorado dad accused of slaying his pregnant wife and their two toddler daughters. Eventually, the man said he broke it off when Watts kept telling him lies.
According to court documents, Watts had been having an affair with a co-worker. The anonymous man said that he imagined the co-worker could be either a man or a woman. Friends of Shanann Watts also claimed she had told them she suspected her husband was having an affair. However, as the scholar Elizabeth Wright points out, "none of these French feminists align themselves with the feminist movement as it appeared in the Anglophone world".
Some branches of feminism closely track the political leanings of the larger society, such as liberalism and conservatism, or focus on the environment. Liberal feminism seeks individualistic equality of men and women through political and legal reform without altering the structure of society. Catherine Rottenberg has argued that the neoliberal shirt in Liberal feminism has led to that form of feminism being individualized rather than collectivized and becoming detached from social inequality.
Radical feminism considers the male-controlled capitalist hierarchy as the defining feature of women's oppression and the total uprooting and reconstruction of society as necessary. Libertarian feminism conceives of people as self-owners and therefore as entitled to freedom from coercive interference. Lesbian feminism is thus closely related. Other feminists criticize separatist feminism as sexist. Rosemary Hennessy and Chrys Ingraham say that materialist forms of feminism grew out of Western Marxist thought and have inspired a number of different but overlapping movements, all of which are involved in a critique of capitalism and are focused on ideology's relationship to women.
Sara Ahmed argues that Black and Postcolonial feminisms pose a challenge "to some of the organizing premises of Western feminist thought. Since that time, women in developing nations and former colonies and who are of colour or various ethnicities or living in poverty have proposed additional feminisms. In the late twentieth century various feminists began to argue that gender roles are socially constructed ,   and that it is impossible to generalize women's experiences across cultures and histories.
Feminist views on transgender people differ. Riot grrrls took an anti-corporate stance of self-sufficiency and self-reliance. According to poll, 18 percent of Americans consider themselves feminists, while 85 percent reported they believe in "equality for women". Despite the popular belief in equal rights, 52 percent did not identify as feminist, 26 percent were unsure, and four percent provided no response. Feminist views on sexuality vary, and have differed by historical period and by cultural context. Feminist attitudes to female sexuality have taken a few different directions.
Matters such as the sex industry , sexual representation in the media, and issues regarding consent to sex under conditions of male dominance have been particularly controversial among feminists. This debate has culminated in the late s and the s, in what came to be known as the feminist sex wars , which pitted anti-pornography feminism against sex-positive feminism , and parts of the feminist movement were deeply divided by these debates.
Over the course of the s, a large number of influential women accepted lesbian and bisexual women as part of feminism. Opinions on the sex industry are diverse. Feminists critical of the sex industry generally see it as the exploitative result of patriarchal social structures which reinforce sexual and cultural attitudes complicit in rape and sexual harassment. Alternately, feminists who support at least part of the sex industry argue that it can be a medium of feminist expression and a means for women to take control of their sexuality.
For the views of feminism on male prostitutes see the article on male prostitution. Feminist views of pornography range from condemnation of pornography as a form of violence against women , to an embracing of some forms of pornography as a medium of feminist expression. For feminists, a woman's right to control her own sexuality is a key issue. Feminists such as Catharine MacKinnon argue that women have very little control over their own bodies, with female sexuality being largely controlled and defined by men in patriarchal societies.
Feminists argue that sexual violence committed by men is often rooted in ideologies of male sexual entitlement, and that these systems grant women very few legitimate options to refuse sexual advances. Feminists argue that all cultures are, in one way or another, dominated by ideologies that largely deny women the right to decide how to express their sexuality, because men under patriarchy feel entitled to define sex on their own terms. This entitlement can take different forms, depending on the culture.
In many [ clarification needed ] parts of the world, especially in conservative and religious cultures, marriage is regarded as an institution which requires a wife to be sexually available at all times, virtually without limit; thus, forcing or coercing sex on a wife is not considered a crime or even an abusive behaviour. This is played out in the sexual objectification of women, with pornography and other forms of sexual entertainment creating the fantasy that all women exist solely for men's sexual pleasure, and that women are readily available and desiring to engage in sex at any time, with any man, on a man's terms.
Sandra Harding says that the "moral and political insights of the women's movement have inspired social scientists and biologists to raise critical questions about the ways traditional researchers have explained gender, sex and relations within and between the social and natural worlds. Lynn Hankinson Nelson notes that feminist empiricists find fundamental differences between the experiences of men and women.
Thus, they seek to obtain knowledge through the examination of the experiences of women, and to "uncover the consequences of omitting, misdescribing, or devaluing them" to account for a range of human experience. One criticism of feminist epistemology is that it allows social and political values to influence its findings. Modern feminism challenges the essentialist view of gender as biologically intrinsic. Feminism in psychology emerged as a critique of the dominant male outlook on psychological research where only male perspectives were studied with all male subjects.
As women earned doctorates in psychology, females and their issues were introduced as legitimate topics of study. Feminist psychology emphasizes social context, lived experience, and qualitative analysis. Gender-based inquiries into and conceptualization of architecture have also come about, leading to feminism in modern architecture. Piyush Mathur coined the term "archigenderic".
Claiming that "architectural planning has an inextricable link with the defining and regulation of gender roles, responsibilities, rights, and limitations", Mathur came up with that term "to explore Feminist activists have established a range of feminist businesses , including women's bookstores, feminist credit unions, feminist presses, feminist mail-order catalogs, and feminist restaurants.
These businesses flourished as part of the second and third-waves of feminism in the s, s, and s. Corresponding with general developments within feminism, and often including such self-organizing tactics as the consciousness-raising group, the movement began in the s and flourished throughout the s.

We are trying to change the future: The feminist movement produced feminist fiction, feminist non-fiction, and feminist poetry, which created new interest in women's writing. It also prompted a general reevaluation of women's historical and academic contributions in response to the belief that women's lives and contributions have been underrepresented as areas of scholarly interest. Much of the early period of feminist literary scholarship was given over to the rediscovery and reclamation of texts written by women. In Western feminist literary scholarship, Studies like Dale Spender 's Mothers of the Novel and Jane Spencer's The Rise of the Woman Novelist were ground-breaking in their insistence that women have always been writing.
Commensurate with this growth in scholarly interest, various presses began the task of reissuing long-out-of-print texts. Virago Press began to publish its large list of 19th and earlyth-century novels in and became one of the first commercial presses to join in the project of reclamation. In the s Pandora Press, responsible for publishing Spender's study, issued a companion line of 18th-century novels written by women. Particular works of literature have come to be known as key feminist texts.
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft , is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf , is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy. The widespread interest in women's writing is related to a general reassessment and expansion of the literary canon. Interest in post-colonial literatures , gay and lesbian literature , writing by people of colour, working people's writing, and the cultural productions of other historically marginalized groups has resulted in a whole scale expansion of what is considered "literature", and genres hitherto not regarded as "literary", such as children's writing, journals, letters, travel writing, and many others are now the subjects of scholarly interest.
According to Elyce Rae Helford, "Science fiction and fantasy serve as important vehicles for feminist thought, particularly as bridges between theory and practice. Feminist nonfiction has played an important role in voicing concerns about women's lived experiences. In addition, many feminist movements have embraced poetry as a vehicle through which to communicate feminist ideas to public audiences through anthologies, poetry collections, and public readings. Women's music or womyn's music or wimmin's music is the music by women , for women, and about women.
Feminism became a principal concern of musicologists in the s  as part of the New Musicology.
Prior to this, in the s, musicologists were beginning to discover women composers and performers, and had begun to review concepts of canon , genius, genre and periodization from a feminist perspective. In other words, the question of how women musicians fit into traditional music history was now being asked. Concepts such as music as gendered discourse; professionalism; reception of women's music; examination of the sites of music production; relative wealth and education of women ; popular music studies in relation to women's identity; patriarchal ideas in music analysis; and notions of gender and difference are among the themes examined during this time.
While the music industry has long been open to having women in performance or entertainment roles, women are much less likely to have positions of authority, such as being the leader of an orchestra. Feminist cinema, advocating or illustrating feminist perspectives, arose largely with the development of feminist film theory in the late '60s and early '70s. Women who were radicalized during the s by political debate and sexual liberation; but the failure of radicalism to produce substantive change for women galvanized them to form consciousness-raising groups and set about analysing, from different perspectives, dominant cinema's construction of women.
Approaches in philosophy and psychoanalysis fuelled feminist film criticism, feminist independent film and feminist distribution. It has been argued that there are two distinct approaches to independent, theoretically inspired feminist filmmaking. The second approach, a feminist counterculture, embodies feminine writing to investigate a specifically feminine cinematic language. During the s—s heyday of the big Hollywood studios, the status of women in the industry was abysmal.
This progress stagnated in the 90s, and men outnumber women five to one in behind the camera roles. Since the late nineteenth century some feminists have allied with socialism, whereas others have criticized socialist ideology for being insufficiently concerned about women's rights.
August Bebel , an early activist of the German Social Democratic Party SPD , published his work Die Frau und der Sozialismus , juxtaposing the struggle for equal rights between sexes with social equality in general. In there was an International Conference of Socialist Women in Stuttgart where suffrage was described as a tool of class struggle. Clara Zetkin of the SPD called for women's suffrage to build a " socialist order, the only one that allows for a radical solution to the women's question ". In Britain, the women's movement was allied with the Labour party.
Radical Women is the oldest socialist feminist organization in the U. Although she supported equal rights for women, she opposed women fighting on the front and clashed with the anarcha-feminist Mujeres Libres. Feminists in Ireland in the early 20th century included the revolutionary Irish Republican , suffragette and socialist Constance Markievicz who in was the first woman elected to the British House of Commons. Fascism has been prescribed dubious stances on feminism by its practitioners and by women's groups. Amongst other demands concerning social reform presented in the Fascist manifesto in was expanding the suffrage to all Italian citizens of age 18 and above, including women accomplished only in , after the defeat of fascism and eligibility for all to stand for office from age This demand was particularly championed by special Fascist women's auxiliary groups such as the fasci femminilli and only partly realized in , under pressure from dictator Benito Mussolini 's more conservative coalition partners.
Cyprian Blamires states that although feminists were among those who opposed the rise of Adolf Hitler , feminism has a complicated relationship with the Nazi movement as well. While Nazis glorified traditional notions of patriarchal society and its role for women, they claimed to recognize women's equality in employment. The civil rights movement has influenced and informed the feminist movement and vice versa. Many Western feminists adapted the language and theories of black equality activism and drew parallels between women's rights and the rights of non-white people.
Neoliberalism has been criticized by feminist theory for having a negative effect on the female workforce population across the globe, especially in the global south. Masculinist assumptions and objectives continue to dominate economic and geopolitical thinking. Proponents of neoliberalism have theorized that by increasing women's participation in the workforce, there will be heightened economic progress, but feminist critics have noted that this participation alone does not further equality in gender relations. The feminist movement has effected change in Western society, including women's suffrage; greater access to education; more nearly equitable pay with men; the right to initiate divorce proceedings; the right of women to make individual decisions regarding pregnancy including access to contraceptives and abortion ; and the right to own property.
From the s on, the campaign for women's rights  was met with mixed results  in the U. Other countries of the EEC agreed to ensure that discriminatory laws would be phased out across the European Community. Some feminist campaigning also helped reform attitudes to child sexual abuse.

The view that young girls cause men to have sexual intercourse with them was replaced by that of men's responsibility for their own conduct, the men being adults. Reproductive rights in the U. Wade enunciating a woman's right to choose whether to carry a pregnancy to term. Western women gained more reliable birth control , allowing family planning and careers. The movement started in the s in the U.
In the final three decades of the 20th century, Western women knew a new freedom through birth control , which enabled women to plan their adult lives, often making way for both career and family. The division of labour within households was affected by the increased entry of women into workplaces in the 20th century. Sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild found that, in two-career couples, men and women, on average, spend about equal amounts of time working, but women still spend more time on housework,   although Cathy Young responded by arguing that women may prevent equal participation by men in housework and parenting.
Brown writes, "Women are most likely to make a substantial contribution when subsistence activities have the following characteristics: It came into force in those nations ratifying it. Feminist jurisprudence is a branch of jurisprudence that examines the relationship between women and law.
It addresses questions about the history of legal and social biases against women and about the enhancement of their legal rights. Feminist jurisprudence signifies a reaction to the philosophical approach of modern legal scholars , who typically see law as a process for interpreting and perpetuating a society's universal, gender-neutral ideals. Feminist legal scholars claim that this fails to acknowledge women's values or legal interests or the harms that they may anticipate or experience.
Proponents of gender-neutral language argue that the use of gender-specific language often implies male superiority or reflects an unequal state of society. Merriam-Webster chose "feminism" as its Word of the Year, noting that "Word of the Year is a quantitative measure of interest in a particular word. Feminist theology is a movement that reconsiders the traditions, practices, scriptures, and theologies of religions from a feminist perspective.
Some of the goals of feminist theology include increasing the role of women among the clergy and religious authorities, reinterpreting male-dominated imagery and language about God, determining women's place in relation to career and motherhood, and studying images of women in the religion's sacred texts. Christian feminism is a branch of feminist theology which seeks to interpret and understand Christianity in light of the equality of women and men, and that this interpretation is necessary for a complete understanding of Christianity.
While there is no standard set of beliefs among Christian feminists, most agree that God does not discriminate on the basis of sex, and are involved in issues such as the ordination of women , male dominance and the balance of parenting in Christian marriage , claims of moral deficiency and inferiority of women compared to men, and the overall treatment of women in the church.
Islamic feminists advocate women's rights, gender equality , and social justice grounded within an Islamic framework. Advocates seek to highlight the deeply rooted teachings of equality in the Quran and encourage a questioning of the patriarchal interpretation of Islamic teaching through the Quran, hadith sayings of Muhammad , and sharia law towards the creation of a more equal and just society.
