Abstract

This proposal deals with explaining a work in progress that is being develop by the Department of Social Science Education in the Degree in Primary Education Teacher Training and Master in Secondary Education Teacher Training of University of Málaga, in relation to discussing feminist theory. This complicated situation was not a simple anecdote. It was a problem detected by most universities both national and foreigner ones [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]. Therefore, numerous publications have expressed the difficulties in explaining this kind of topics called “controversial issues” [7]. On the one hand, students could think that teachers that explain feminism/s or gender issues are “feminazi”. On the other hand, in their opinion, they are being indoctrinated by their teachers. Then, we have to think how women of different generations could be considered natural enemies [8]. Is there a “postfeminist generation” or a “milleniam generation” that is not able to reflect on the influence of mass media? If such is true, why can not we think about that influence?
