"Ain't I A Woman?" On the irony of trans-exclusion by black and African feminists

When African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activists Sojourner Truth asked “Aint I A Woman?” as she stood in front of the crowd of largely white women’s rights activists at the 1851 Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio she marked a critical concern for women who have historically been seen as “Other.” Truth’s seemingly rhetorical question was used to highlight the ways in which her womanhood as a black slave woman was not recognised by the women’s movement. Long before the term…See More

Dear Chimamanda, being violently forced to be someone you're not is not a privilege

Dear Ms. Adichie, Because of the fearless way you have defended and protected your sisters, over the past few years you have become one of the foremost feminist icons in the world. But after your interview with U.K.’s Channel 4 last week in which you made uninformed and ultimately violent comments on the experiences of transgender women, I have to question the sincerity of this show of fearlessness. In the video (below), you argued that “the whole problem of gender in the world is about our…See More

Dear Ms. Adichie,



Because of the fearless way you have defended and protected your sisters, over the past few years you have become one of the foremost feminist icons in the world. But after your interview with U.K.’s Channel 4 last week in which you made uninformed and ultimately violent comments on the experiences of transgender women, I have to question the sincerity of this show of fearlessness.

LGBT-identified individuals are twice as likely to be attacked in hate crimes than others and 2016 marked the… Continue

Happy International Women’s Day, I guess? Forgive the ‘tude, but as we roll through Donald Trump’s second month as President, it would be irresponsible of me to pretend that now’s a stellar time to be a woman in Trump’s World, whether you’re American or not. And while the Wall Street bull’s newest opponent—a …
