“Disability” is not a condition but the way society is structured to oppress certain individuals.
Sexual harassment, assault and misogyny are not shocking for me as they are for Professor Schmidt.
“I first became interested in Aunty Dusty’s feminist story when I discovered she wore a pantsuit to her own wedding, instead of a gown. This one action is what inspired me to conduct this interview, in an attempt to learn more about her life experiences, and the moments that shaped her into the powerful woman she is.”
How should we raise awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault?
The numbers tell the real story.
“Am I the ‘bad feminist’, or is my mum?”
“I watch the unethical commercialisation of feminist movements with disappointment.”
“I simply cannot shake the feeling that the event … has become another target of capitalist exploitation.”
“In the lead up to the release of Black Panther there was a general apprehension within POC communities that is difficult to describe.”
Mainstream feminist discourse too often ignores class-related issues.
