#intersectionalfemism

"My parents had never modelled healthy communication to us, so the hardest things for me were expressing my negative feelings, showing empathy for someone feeling sad or angry, and apologising."

Let's start our blog series on Marriage! Warning: Editor is quite a grouch on the whole idea 😝
"The propaganda targeted at young girls to aspire to marriage has failed to work on me. Marriage, to me, is not necessarily romantic. It is unrealistically idealised especially to young girls and women. Two people who love each other committing to a life together? Of course that can be wonderful. But the institution of marriage itself, tied to the state and its resources, riddled with legalities that leave women vulnerable to abuses, and all the difficulties tied to it? Not so much. Make no mistake, heterosexual marriages are still far from egalitarian." Link in bio, illustration by @yesyesmonorail .

"Consent is more complicated than a legal age or saying “yes” – it’s about the agreement between two people on fair, equal conditions. Any [person] with this amount of power, fame and wealth cannot engage in such clandestine and, frankly, sketchy activity and be considered of an “equal playing field” as with these women who don’t have a cult following."

Woman crush Wednesday 💕 Talk Town teamet crusher hårdt på mange forskellige fantastiske kvinder. I dag er det @khaterahparwani! Parwani er leder for EXITmentor og juridisk rådgiver for @exitcirklen. Hendes stemme vægter tungt i debatten om vold i nære relationer og hendes arbejde med empowerment af kvinder, der er, eller har været udsat for fysisk og social kontrol er prisværdigt! Et af temaerne på årets #talktown18 er vold i nære relationer, og vi ønsker os en debat, der er stærk, nuanceret og solidarisk; ligesom Khaterah Parwani 💪🏽💪🏻💪🏿 #womancrushwednesday #feminisme #feministfestival #exitcirklen #khaterahparwani #intersectionalfemism

"The notions of segregation have naturally been exaggerated by cultural influences, but regardless of where they come from, they’re not helping anyone. Keeping something hidden and separate make it coveted. It also disfigures, like a visual game of whispers, the original message getting lost along the way. And Islam never was, and nor will ever be, about avoiding the opposite gender and creating barriers, but instead about mutual respect and collaboration." Read more, link in bio @wearethetempest .

Além da desigualdade salarial entre gêneros, é preciso combater a diferença entre o que recebem as mulheres brancas e negras.

Jessica Chastain ajudou a dar um passo para que, pelo menos, entre artistas do mesmo sexo as contas sejam mais igualitárias, conseguindo que o salário de Octavia Spencer subisse cinco vezes numa nova comédia em que ambas vão participar.

Foi a própria Octavia Spencer quem partilhou a história numa conversa no painel da "Women Breaking Barriers" do Festival de Cinema Sundance.

"Thanks to the constant stream of judgement against them, Muslim women have some pretty heavy lifting to do when it comes to identity politics, and sometimes it seems like there are only two options: Either protect a faith-based community that's stereotyped for oppressing women, or address the very real issues of violence and sexism within the community—and face backlash for it. In other words, the fight for modern-day Muslim women is two-fold: patriarchy within their community and xenophobia outside it." Read more, link in bio.

Though I cannot participate in the second Women’s March today, I stand with all feminists as we make our voices heard. I am proud of the people who haven’t accepted Trump’s America as the norm. There are more issues than just those affecting women last year and today. I stand with Dreamers, #blacklivesmatter, and all those who feel victimized, marginalized, and ignored. This march is the essence of intersectional feminism and I am proud to be a part of it

If you enjoyed our filial piety blog series, why not write for our next series on the theme of marriage? These days, marriage is no longer the crass economic, political, or social exchange it used to be. Nevertheless, many of the expectations and roles tied up with marriage still persist. In Islam, some hadiths profess marriage to be half of one’s faith, leaving the impression that the unmarried are thus incomplete in their practice of faith. Girls still grow up conditioned to view marriage as a goal, and failure to fulfil this goal is often seen as a personal flaw or a failure to be loved, regardless of her personal achievements.

What are the roles and expectations that you may struggle with, or have managed to reconciled, when it comes to marriage? More details on our website, link in bio. .

"Malay dramas (and I’m talking about films too) are the...most obvious example of how disoriented its content and values are. Now, before your blood pressure rises any further, we’re not generalising all Malay media as morally dubious and out of touch with modern day mores – there are good ones out there, no doubt. But a good majority – especially ones that become mainstream successes – put too much importance on didactic, religious conservatism, preaching its significance over acknowledging alarming social issues that come with it."

Our latest post in the 'filial piety' blog series: "Unsurprisingly, the burden of caregiving seems to fall more on women even as more opportunities are opened up to them. We don’t hold our sons up to the same standards we hold our daughters up to, even as we allow our daughters to pursue careers and interests beyond the home and family." The author dwells on her personal difficulty that many women face - the role of caregiving that is disproportionately placed on women. Read more, link in bio. Illustration by @yesyesmonorail .

Manal al-Sharif, an activist for women’s rights in Saudi Arabia, featured in @nytimes The Saturday Profile: Her generation was bound by a rigid form of Islam. She remembers religious leaders coming to lecture on her school’s public address system. Leaflets were passed out in the streets, prescribing what and what not to do. An elderly aunt who had always worn colorful traditional Saudi gowns suddenly began to cloak herself in a head-to-toe black abaya, because her children told her to. Her mother took down from the bedroom wall a decorative hand-stitched canvas of a woman, bathing. Photos vanished from their apartment. Young men were routinely encouraged to join the fight against Soviet forces in Afghanistan.

Being true to that sort of doctrine, as she recalled it, required hating the infidel. “My generation, born in the ’70s and ’80s, we were all radicalized,” she said. “You give up so much to follow these rules. It gets under your skin.” Read more, link in bio.

"My heart goes out to the young people from our society today faced with these challenges in order to start a family. This pressure is worrying and has the element of ‘keeping up with the Joneses ’ that has become prevalent in our culture today." The author writes about the pressures of culture and tradition in marriage facing young couples today. Link to full story in bio. Illustration by @yesyesmonorail .
