The main focus of this blog will be on issues specific to sexism in our larger society and how the messages from society seep into our everyday lives affecting how we think, feel and ultimately act. However, being that I find myself passionately against the suffering of not only women but also that of other oppressed groups, time will be diverted intermittently from women’s issues in order to discuss the harsh realities of racism, speceisism, and classism in American society. After all, these -isms intersect to institutionalize inequality into the fabric of our society.
The discussions brought forth in this blog are meant to be inclusive, not divisive–and also to generate discussions to include others equally concerned. Sexism, racism, speceisism and other -isms are not just one particular’s group problem, but rather collective problems dependent on collective ideas, needing collective solutions.
Occasionally, blog post will consist of short stories, poetry and other fiction writing related to women’s issues (and other intersecting -ism). If you have any fiction work that you feel women can find empowerment or strength in, and would like to be featured on this blog, please contact me personally. I would love to share your work!
Please share any thoughts, ideas or concerns you may have with any discussions posted.
