ISSUES ALL FEMINISTS MUST SUPPORT

ISSUES ALL FEMINISTS MUST SUPPORT

The term "intersectional feminism" was brought into the mainstream during the women's marches that occurred after Donald Trump took office. The concept has been around for decades, first being used by law professor Kimberle Crenshaw in the 1980's.  Her idea is based on the thought that different intersections of oppression such as race, class, gender, sexuality etc, all affect a starting point for how gender oppression hurts women who come from different backgrounds.
While being an intersectional feminist is seen as the most inclusive framework there are many other movements and issues we can support that are also apart of this interlocking system of power that impacts the most marginalized groups in society.

 

NON CIS Genders (Cisgender meaning those who identify as the gender they were born with)

This past week the Trump administration went after this group in an attempt to erase them by defining a persons gender by simplifying it to what genitalia you were born with.  Government wide protections and recognition made under the Obama administration would be rolled back and transgender people would loose protections under federal civil rights laws. Our intersectionality should include nonbinary or genderqueer people in discussions of misogyny and feminism, because many people affected by misogyny do not identify as women or were not assigned this gender at birth. This is a group with very high rates of violence against them as well as suicide and helping to destigmatize and fight for their rights is the least we can do.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Intersectional feminist should support the Black Lives Matter movement.  Fighting against police brutality may seem indeed feminist as many black women have been killed or have their children killed at the hands of over zealous police at overwhelmingly high rates.This is a no brainer for people truly looking to make the world a more equal place. There's a number of ways to support BLM, you can attend meetings or a march and just show up and voice your support.

 

INDIGENOUS WOMEN

Native women endure the highest rates of assault and rape in North America. There are many missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada and the US and the multi-pronged oppressions of racism, classism, and misogyny unduly affect these women who are too often ignored by mainstream feminism.

 

SEX WORKERS

Not all people who do sex work are women, but women disproportionately suffer the stigma, discrimination, and violence against sex workers. Sex work is not the same as sex trafficking, and the laws and campaigns against it mostly serve to make it harder for (usually) marginalized women to get jobs, benefits, and safety. Instead of attacking sex workers out of some misguided desire to “save” them, feminists would better help and support the people who need it by listening to the needs outlined by actual sex workers. New Zealand has completely decriminalized sex work, such that brothel workers have access to unemployment insurance and join unions, just like any other job — and 64% of workers found it easier to refuse clients, while 57% said the relationship with police officers had improved. These are positive outcomes! The last thing feminists should want is vulnerable people being made more vulnerable.

Finally we must support, A RIGHT TO CHOICE, FOR EVERYTHING

This may bring to mind a right to choose in terms of reproductive health  and women having full autonomy over their own bodies but we mean a right to all choices a person can make for themselves.

Women should be free to wear what they choose, have the lifestyle they choose, careers they choose and act as they please. Feminists should support people who want to engage in traditional gender role dynamics just as much as people who want to smash the patriarchy and wear the pants.  Let's no longer judge each other or feel threatened by those who are different from us.True change can only happen when we support one another and stand up to each others oppressors together.

Just this past weekend there was a horrific act of domestic terrorism against a synagogue in Pittsburgh.  In response several Muslim groups have raised thousands of dollars to help support the survivors.  The statement they released simply said, "We need to respond to evil with good."

Use your voice and your vote next week to show your unity and stand up for all of those groups who are simply just looking for equality and to live their lives free of fear and free of judgement.

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga.

    Hello world! Permit me to discuss how, Cyber Genie Hack Pro team assisted me in getting my forgotten crypto wallet access back. Losing access to my wallet was traumatizing and heartbreaking to my household because it was a joint wallet where I and my partner decided to save for the future instead of using all these ridiculous financial banks in the USA controlled by the Matrix.  Our precious crypto savings were on the verge of vanishing before our very before. If there is one thing I am forever grateful for in 2024 is my encounter with Cyber Genie’s team.

    Y’ALL BE CAREFUL WITH CRYPTO TRADERS, GOT SCAMMED BUT RECOVERED MY FUNDS BACK!!!

    Please everyone should be careful and stop being deceived by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $279,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their fund, I contacted MORRISGRAY830@GMAIL. COM , the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back. Contact; MORRISGRAY830@GMAIL,COM…

    Those of us who are fat and are subjected to job, medical and social discrimination could use your support as well. Other than that, this is a good list.
