E24 Why am I scared of white feminism?
In this episode I talk about what is white feminism, why white feminism is so scary and dangerous, and historical events with my personal experiences.  Every time I hear someone saying “we need more cis women in leadership positions” I feel a little uncomfortable. I remember Hillary Clinton saying in an interview that “in order for Europe to stop the rise of the far-right and fascism, Europe must curve migration”.   A conversation about white feminism instagram live: Comment, subscribe, and follow!   Sources: Richard Dyer’s (1988) essay ‘White’   DISCLAIMER: A white feminist is not necessarily the same as a white woman who is a feminist; there are women of color who practice white feminism and white women who are not white feminists, even though most women in white feminism are…white.

We discuss the politics of self-care, why it is a political action, how we can take care of ourselves and our loved ones, all this while me doing one of my favorite self-care rituals: make up and listening to music.  When fighting injustice it is also important to remember that oppressed people are constant receivers of capitalist exploitation, colonialism, ableist, homophobia, policing, and other forms of systematic and structural violence. Loving and taking care of that body is not only important to keep going, but also that love and self-care becomes a powerful political action.    Comment, subscribe, and follow!
