The Straw Feminist trope is a deliberately created, exaggerated caricature of a feminist that is used to undermine and ridicule feminist movements. This was probably one of the most difficult and longest videos I’ve made so far, partly because the Straw Feminist is a very complex and twisted representation. I actually cut out about five minutes of actual analysis to keep the video at a reasonable viewing time. The Straw Feminist trope has many more facets and MANY more examples but I hope I was able to provide a general overview.
