This blog is a female-centric and radical feminism-positive space. everything reblogged here relates to radfem ideology and the celebration of women, though not everything is reblogged from radical feminist-identified sources.
In this video I lay down some basic tenets of radical feminism in an effort to create understanding of the movement. I touch on prostitution, pornography, sexual and procreative exploitation, and transgender politics. This discussion is rooted in class analysis.
great video on just what radical feminism is, exactly.
So I’m hosting a casual radfem meet up for the Northern California Area.
The meetup will be every 3rd Sunday from 2-4p.m.
It’s a way to hang out at meet other radfems, lesfems, or other radical leaning women. It is women/girls only but the venue itself is open to everyone. The venue is wheelchair accessible and serves gluten free food.
The location is posted in facebook groups, or you can contact me through this page for the location if you’re willing to provide me with some information.
If you’re anywhere around the north bay, south bay, Davis, San Fran, Santa Rosa, Oakland, etc area, or your followers are; I’d appreciate if you reblogged this. Carpooling may be an option so check in with me if you can’t come because of a ride.
Hope to see you soon!
(A Sacramento Radfem Meetup is coming soon. This post will be updated once it’s started).
The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.
Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.
Troop 6000 is the first in New York City designated solely for homeless girls.
The new troop is among a number of programs begun by the city to meet the needs of children, who make up nearly 40 percent of the roughly 60,000 people in the city’s primary shelter system. Of 287 people housed at the Sleep Inn, 155 are under 18, according to homeless services.
The Girl Scouts of Greater New York is covering the costs for Troop 6000: a $25 membership fee; a $75 starter kit of patches, pins, workbooks and vests; and the $20 monthly dues. Donations are being accepted.
These girls deserve a better life.They’re amazing and beautiful and they are so kind. They want to grow up and be able to help other homeless people , to build shelters and save lives. These noble thoughts should not drown in poverty and the lack of opportunities for homeless people. We are the community we should help each other and fight for equal rights and opportunities, because unity is the only way to survive.
listen. listen, I’m serious about wanting to get to know y’all. i really want to talk to you, and develop friendships, and have really good conversations about life and our experiences and the stuff that makes us happy / excited / intrigued.
the activism and awareness portion of radical feminism is super great and important, but imo coming to know each other and connecting as women and creating a really excellent internal support network is also super great and important. i’m v about that life! if you’re also v about that life, we should for sure talk about it!
