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...

If we do gender appropriately, we simultaneously sustain, reproduce, and render legitimate the institutional arrangements that are based on sex category. If we fail to do gender appropriately, we as individuals-not the institutional arrangements-may be called to account (for our character, motives, and predispositions).

"Doing Gender" 

Authors: Candace West and Don H. Zimmerman

- a good article on gender performance and how gender is constructed and reproduced in daily societal interactions. Moreover, this excerpt points out that those who “fail” at doing gender in the “right” ways are often marked as societal “deviants” who are judged to have¬†questionable¬†motives & character.
