A Collective Response to  

"To Be Anti-Racist is to be Feminist: The Hoodie and Hijab Are Not Equals"     

 Source: www.thefeministwire.com


It is with loving concern with which we, the undersigned feminist writers, activists and academics from diverse racial, religious, economic, and political backgrounds, write to this brilliant collective today. An article recently published on The Feminist Wire's website and circulated via its facebook page has prompted this note. In her article, "To Be Anti-Racist Is To Be Feminist: The Hoodie and the Hijab Are Not Equals," Adele Wilde-Blavatsky attempts to address the important question of what it means to be an anti-racist feminist in the 21st century. Her article, however, serves to assert white feminist privilege and power by producing a reductive understanding of racial and gendered violence and by denying Muslim women their agency.

Coming Out & Loving Yourself

Coming out can be a scary thing and often times can be a bit confusing. With a community filled with many labels and sub-labels, finding yourself and where you fit in it, can be a bit challenging. Come join me in a discussion on the process and journey of coming out and how to continue to self-love, self-care, and self-discover during this challenging process.
