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...

and she actually compares the way women in America are “routinely naked” to ACTUAL SLAVERY. Saying “in the antebellum South, young black male slaves were naked while serving the clothed white masters at table. To live in a culture in which women are routinely naked where men aren’t is to learn inequality in little ways all day long.”

making the choice to dress a certain way, regardless of how it relates to societal pressures and outside influence is in no way the same thing as the intentional, calculated and blatant dehumanizing aspects of slavery & FORCED nakedness. it just isn’t. No one’s going to whip me if I choose against wearing a mini skirt.


come on… we can all be feminist without comparing the CURRENT state of womanhood in America to slavery. honestly we can.
