Intersectional Feminism – By Dr. Megan Stubbs

https://spark.adobe.com/page/IdFYlY7ev7z3N/

From ‘Me Too” to ‘Ask Her More’ and ‘Don’t tell me to smile’, its clear that the current climate has feminism at the forefront. While these initiatives and more are starting very important conversations, it is important to note that when we say we are fighting for equality for women, that it truly means all women.

When using the term ‘women’ it is imperative that we look at marginalized populations, who incidentally are the ones who need feminism the most. Women, referring to gender, but are the challenges the same of a white woman vs a black woman? What about a straight woman versus a lesbian woman? What about a white lesbian high school graduate vs a straight Latina woman with a masters degree?

When taking into account all of the nuances that encompass differences women have in society, we are being intersectional. Widening our view on these important distinctions helps us on our way to practicing intersectional feminism. Universalizing the claims of relatively privileged women can often take away or even silence those in marginalized populations.

So if you are really into feminism, see how intersectional feminism fits into your world and see if you need to make any adjustments.

Tuesday Tunes – Roots of Creation

Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam favorites like Gathering of The Vibes, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, Fishbone, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offer up a high-energy, infectious experience.

“From addictive reggae pop songs to consciously charged roots rhythms and berzerk electronic improvisations, the grace and precision with which Roots of Creation execute their bass-heavy works is overwhelming. Their roots are tinged with rock, their rock brushed with electronica, and they’re as likely to dash off into a 10-minute guitar-led groove as they are to perform righteous vocal songs that resonate like the roots-rock classics of old.” — Homegrown Music Network
