FEMINISM 101 - FOR ELEPHANT JOURNAL
Published May 3rd, 2017: Feminism 101
My third article published on Elephant Journal reflects on how feminism and the collective consciousness intersect.
You can read an excerpt below.
Statistically, historically, it is going to take conscious, hard work and effort to find equality—if not just for women, but for all minority and marginalized groups.
This does not mean we shouldn’t try. It means that every day, we have a choice and a vote for what the future will hold.
I often feel a strong sense of anger and shame and longing for revenge when I consider the inequality I feel as a woman and the injustice I witness against other minority groups.
But I know that as a woman, as a human, I want equality! So that anger and fear must be translated into love and consciousness.
The only productive type of change is the change that comes from within and is itself open to changing and evolving over time as new information arises.
Feminism is but a word with as many different definitions as there are people who use it.
Solidarity must transcend gender, race, age, education levels, marital status. I argue that in the collective striving for consciousness, no one should be left behind.
What can you do today to help make the world a more conscious place?
