I spend most of my time trying to smash the patriarchy, keep my privilege (of being a cis-upper middle-class woman) in check, and hoarding books. In my free time, I travel and work in the field of gender research and writing. I believe that equal rights, poetry, and pani puri can change the world.
Collegiality and Other Ballads keeps women’s voices out on principle, for men to speak as women, or re-voice them without hesitation or irony and that sounds like a power grab. In an attempt to giving voice, they take voices away.
