Follow Friday: The Feminist Wire

5975

The mission of The Feminist Wire is “to provide socio-political and cultural critique of anti-feminist, racist, and imperialist politics pervasive in all forms and spaces of private and public lives of individuals globally. Of particular critical interest to [them] are social and political phenomena that block, negate, or limit the satisfaction of goods or ends that humans, especially the most vulnerable, minimally require for living free of structural violence. The Feminist Wire seeks to valorize and sustain pro-feminist representations and create alternative frameworks to build a just and equitable society.”

One article that particularly stood out to me is by Kieu-Linh Caroline Valverde titled “A Call to Action for Women of Color in Academia.” I highly encourage you to check it out especially if you’re looking to go into academia!
