1) Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga; It is a Zimbabwean fictional text that follows a young women's journey to education while highlighting the intersections of race, class, gender, and educational level. 2) Borderlands/La Frontera by Gloria Anzaldúa; if you haven't read this yet, please read it! Chicana feminist and lesbian, Anzaldúa, uses poetry and many other writing genres to explain her history and experiences as a women and how it is not a separate identity from her Chicana-ness/brownness and lesbian-ness. (Cherrie Moraga and Ana Castillo are also awesome) "Cunt" by Inga Muscio; I think it is self-explanatory but it is a rather radical (although, unfortunately trans-exclusive) piece that is quite clearly in the author's voice and playing on her experiences. A great read, although equally enjoyable to problematize.
Hello! I just moved here from Seattle, and Olympia before that. I am a proud feminist and I am excited to share what that means to me and hear about what feminism means to you. I'm excited to meat y'all!
