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...

  6. matryushka said: Mona Eltahawy is awful. She is just an Arab woman with a white woman script. Reductive analyses about brown men being particularly abusive and Arab/Muslim societies being inherently oppressive. Awful awful analyst.
