As we do every year, the blog will be doing spotlights on feminists from around the world throughout the month of March (Women’s Herstory Month) as well as getting back to our regular scheduled blogging. So happy Women’s History Month and stay tuned!
(PS. in case you did not know, yesterday was International Women of Color Day, an event that started in 1981 to celebrate women of color around the world. Despite its 20+ year existence, I did not know about it until a few days ago thanks to twitter. When I questioned my colleagues from multiple unis about the day, they did not know about it either. I find this lapse in our collective knowledge as troubling as the absences in many WHM videos on youtube. I’ll be teaching about the day and its history in my courses from now on.)
