1. Our Favorite People: As organizers, we spend a lot of time complaining about the people we don’t like… but what about the folk that enrich our work and keep us going? Listen in to hear us talk about our favorite white person, our favorite coalition, and our favorite landlord.

  • Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Happened In The 5 Months Since

    As I mentally prepare to watch and discuss ‪#‎GirlsRising‬ today– a film that portrays the lives of nine young girls from around the world describing the challenges they face being denied an education– I googled “chibok kidnapping nigeria."

    My new essay explores how Beyonce’s feminist stance in pop culture helped frame my own feminist awakening:

    “I am in my 30s and was emboldened by Beyonce’s feminist stance on that stage, and can’t help but believe that that image will be equally as powerful to young people who witness that moment, whose first engagement with feminism will be that moment. Maybe, just maybe, Beyonce will serve as the bridgebetween pop culture and feminists like bell and Barbara and Audre, maybe some young woman bobbing her head to ‘Blow’ or ‘Partition’ or ‘Flawless’ will do so while reading Ain’t I A Woman? or Homegirls or Sister Outsider.”
