Artist statement
For me the personal has always been in bed with the political. Questions and challenges arise from living in the Diaspora, and ones life has the capacity to canonize the art work from the mixture of personal and politics. My everyday practice as a product of this world, is to recognize myself for what I am, not what I have been ushered into believing about myself. And what I am is an unapologetic brown woman.

"I am nobody, I am just an extremely ordinary person with an internet connection and endless desire to learn."
A. Abraham (via wordsnquotes)

Emma Sulkowicz is on the cover of this month’s New York Magazine and that is the coolest thing wow

DUUUUDE this is a huge fucking deal honestly

I just want to put out there that Princess, an AfroLatina trans woman at Temple University, also talks about how her university downright refused to investigate her rape even though medics and police officers were there after the assault, and let her rapist walk away unquestioned.Source (x), which much more details.
Please use the momentum of this story to help multiply marginalized women, especially those who are getting absolutely *no* support or attention for the violence they are surviving.

think-progress:


But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

tell me intersectionality don’t matter in feminist research…
