new wave feminism

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

125 YEARS OF HOLDING WOMEN RESPONSIBLE FOR LAUNDRY (via 125 Years of Holding Women Responsible for Laundry » Sociological Images)

Yeah, this is just weird.

that one time I yelled at my HS boyfriend because he joked that he, his older brother, & father were out of clean clothes because his mom was out of town.

there are instructions inside the lid of the machine

there are instructions on the bottle of detergent

what the fuck?


Fucking tide and shit commercials that show womyn after womyn, a SLEW of womyn in one commercial, and NO men. Like… ARE WE REALLY STILL THINKING THIS WAY? Men throw shit it the washer too. For fucks sake.
