"without us you wouldn’t have any rights!" without you we wouldn’t have to fight for them

Always this. Always.

"Remember that men gave women the right to vote!"

And remember that men should never have been at such a social and political advantage as to be able to literally give and take away rights from groups of people.

Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!

Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.

FEMINIST THEORY 101: THE BOOK LIST

thefeministpress:

The first in a series of four installments from the Feminist Press, here are the essentials for getting your grounding on what feminism is for different writers, theorists, and activists; and why. All books are linked to their publisher’s purchase page, not Amazon. Most are published by independent presses.

FEMINIST THEORY 101

  • Still Brave: The Evolution of Black Women’s Studies- Edited by Stanlie M. James, Frances Smith Foster & Beverly Guy-Sheftall, this is the up-to-date and definitive collection of race and gender writings today.
  • Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza- By Gloria Andaluza, this essay/poem/lyric/confessional challenges how we even concieve of theory and identity; one of the most groundbreaking Chicana Feminist works.
  • WSQ: Trans- -Edited by Paisley Currah, Lisa Jean Moore & Susan Stryker, a pioneer in the field of trans* studies.
  • Separate Roads to Feminism: Black, Chicana, and White Feminist Movements in America’s Second Wave- by Benita Roth, an excellent survey on different feminist ideas in different feminist groups, why these movements emerged seperately.
  • On Shifting Ground- Edited by Fereshteh Nouraie-Simone and revised for the post-Arab Spring world, this essential essay collection challenges sterotypes and reveals a variety of feminist prespectives from Muslim women.
  • Ain’t I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism- by bell hooks; a poet and stylistic genius writing a sweeping analysis of oppression within different and marginalized communities.
  • The Beauty Myth- Naomi Wolff’s criticism was considered the beginning of the Third Wave, and it speaks to the secret worries we all have: Am I superficial for worrying about my appearence? Are women’s magazines frivolous? In case there’s a doubt, the answer is FUCK NO, and let her tell you about the economic and political industry behind it.
  • New Black Feminist Criticism, 1985-2000- by the complete badass Barbara Christian, she innovates the field of black feminist criticism while challenging how academics centralize on inaccessible postmodern critiques.
  • Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches- Audre Lorde, a black lesbian feminist poet, was an artist. Her writing is a joy to read, even when it tears you apart. This is her essential collection of essays and speaches (but be sure to read some of her poetry too).
  • The Feminist Porn Book- What the fuck is this sex positivity/pro-porn/anti porn debate raging on tumblr? Can I see some primary sources and fucking citations? Read the first collection of writings from feminist adult entertainers and feminist porn scholars (Ed. by Tristan Taormino, Constance Penley, Celine Parrenas Shimizu & Mireille Miller-Young)
  • Simians, Cyborgs, and Women- If you’ve ever wondered about Janelle Monae’s android fixation, read Donna Haraway’s cyborg theory to have your mind blown. Haraway says: we are all cyborgs(!!!!!), we should break down traditional boundaries of how we study “fact,” there are so many possibilities on how we identify sex/gender.
  • Feminism Without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity by Chandra Talpade Mohanty addresses internationalist and third world feminist concerns in a voice that is unforgettable.
  • King Kong Theory- Controversial filmmaker and former prostitute Virginia Despentes writes a memoir and theoretical expansion of the constraints and possibilities of sex and power today, written from the perspective ”as an ugly one for the ugly ones.”
