Capitalist society which is afraid of confrontation and political incorrectness has fabricated several imposters of feminism (consumerist feminism being one of them) in recent years, each version more watered-down and grasping than the last.
This new year, I wish to continue deconstructing and reconstructing the foundations of our society. Here is my feminist resolution check list for 2019.
Here are twelve feminist artists whose work has encouraged serious engagement with questions of gender, sexuality, inclusivity, and intersectionality.
From breaking glass ceilings to widespread protests against sexual harassment, women were a force to be reckoned with in 2018.
I began letting go of my internalised misogyny when I realised that we only resort to hating other girls to try and empower ourselves, because that’s what we’ve been taught all along.
As a postmodern feminist, I realised that whenever I was speaking out, I was creating alternatives – possibilities for myself and others like myself.
Are these the rules? If there are, who sets them? This I believe is the question that postmodern feminism has led me to investigate.
Intersectional feminism brings women together to fight the different hardships set up by the patriarchy for women across different communities.
The task of practising everyday feminism leads to performing exhausting emotional labour, something which feminists can’t really escape from.
It is time for men to take responsibility and understand intersectional feminism and its dynamics without expecting women to spoon-feed them.
