In this episode of Online Office Hours, Lin asked us if Juliet from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was a feminist. We loved responding to this because it’s the kind of question that shows the first spark of interest in a topic. Check out the video for Sara and Elise’s response! We talk about how to nurture this first spark, and push yourself further to discover what actually draws you to Juliet’s character, why she makes us think about feminism, and why it matters. Then we can think about how to reframe the question with an eye toward historical context.
