The concept of the Other was part of Hegelian philosophy in the 1800s, and was adapted by Simone de Beauvoir in the 1900s as a way to discuss male-dominated cultures. In 1957, Betty Friedan wrote The Feminine Mystique, a novel that began to challenge the idea that gender inequality cannot change. Rooted in these theories, the OTHER Project continues to question the status quo by creating our own industries, media, and communities - ultimately positioning the OTHER as dominant and free.
