If the nightmare ban were to go into effect, Ohio would be the only state where breastfeeding is illegal
I am all too familiar with the sense of competition that can arise among Asian women. One of my favorite Filipina studies/feminist theorists, Dr. Allyson Goce Tintiangco-Cubales, describes this competition between Asian women (Filipinas specifically within her writing) as the “Mall of Downness” a belief that Asian women have an inherent sense of competition against one another due to the fact that we have not established a structure of sisterhood to bring us together.
An example that continues to arise for me, especially as of lately, has been occurring in the form of the workplace.
Details surrounding Michael Brown’s death are beginning to emerge.
Can the killing of Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri, spark a new kind of conversation about choice, parenting and family?
Science fiction is all about possibility. In the 1960s, for instance, Star Trek explored gender discrimination and race, while Battlestar Galactica tackled topics like civil rights, police states, and genocide 10 years ago. Despite all of this potential and all of this imagination, our mainstream cultural gatekeepers — the people choosing which movies get made and who gets cast in them — are still prone to ignoring non-white and female characters.
Reproductive justice activists argue that Americans need to connect the dots between police brutality and the black community’s ability to raise families.
I am notorious for taking on too many projects at the same time. It’s the downfall of having a lot of diverse interests. Whether it’s a creative project that seeks to just create something because I was inspired one day, or it’s a project that’s related to work, then you will find me taking on everything.
it’s a good and bad problem to have, I think. I’m passionate, so it means that you can count on me to see things through. It also means that I get little sleep and will work at odd hours of the day, every day.
