Shame In Dr. Brené Brown's Research

Decent Essays
I think some additional words in WGS that are included in feminism that women may encounter are blame and shame. Blame and shame may leave one at risk and feeling demeaned. Women in the past and present have showed the courage to speak out and make a change. Dr. Brené Brown’s Ted talk regarding shame and vulnerability addresses her research on shame. She addresses many issues from her research findings that include why people feel shame.

Blame, however, is what one does to another or accepts for oneself (in judgement of oneself), and may also be used as manipulation to divert accountability for one’s actions against another.
