Thank you, my sister in writing and action. You rock.
I really appreciated that post, including its call to action for future activism across issue divides, but I take exception with the statements in any post that assume we all (white women) don’t show up for non-white causes. I missed the Women’s March because I’m recovering from a surgery, but a month earlier, I traveled to the US/Méx border to volunteer for a day in support of concern about migrant lives lost. Many of us (most of us?) support many different causes. Being women, I think we are the first to self criticize for not doing even more, but is that really helpful, or just more “we must do it all” self defeatism? Thanks for letting me vent that, Cinthia. I’m on the defensive for divisiveness because it feels like a tool that will mostly benefit you-know-who, not any woman of any color or class. As I said: still enjoyed the post, because I’m loving hearing these things discussed!
