Feminist Epistemology in Allison Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It

Abstract

This paper is mainly concerned with feminism and how women can have their rights as opposed to the previous centuries when women were under man's power, male-dominant. The paper will be shown so many issues related to the oscillation of women from liberal feminism to backlash in the Allison Pearson’s novel I Don’t know How She Does it. Allison tries to convey a very important message to the reader, which is the phenomenon of working women and the dilemma they face in their life because of that. Many questions will be answered in this paper such as: what should be sacrificed and why? Is it possible to " have it all "? Another important term is used throughout this paper which is Liberal feminism, which means is an individualistic form of feminist theory, which focuses on women’s ability to maintain their equality through their own actions and choices.
