Research Post 9

The article by Judith Butler on vulnerability and resistance could be used to support my specific case study. The case study looks at a specific band of all women and how they have pushed for change in the way women participate and dress during Carnival. This is supported by the theory provided in Butlers writing. She discussed the resistance by women because they are a vulnerable population due to socio-historical constructions. This is exemplified in the case study, because through historical social norms, women were expected to dress more conservatively, and women with Afro-Creole background were not allowed to participate.
