Every day a feminist

Sat, 14 Nov 2015 09:09:00 +0000

I have been, or rather I am always thinking about what my feminism means to me. How it informs my PhD research; how it shapes my interactions; how I frame my reactions to situations, what it means to be every day a feminist.

On Childhood and Racism…

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 16:00:49 +0000

If I was to chart a chronology of my education on racism, based on my childhood memories, I would say the racists were my first educators but it is the lessons from my parents that have endured.

Dreadlock thefts and mild outrage

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 15:41:11 +0000

The dehumanising effect of animal personhood

Sat, 04 Sep 2010 13:34:39 +0000

To argue that owning a pet is the same as being a parent is to dehumanise a child. Animal rights and human rights are not mutually exclusive but we when our fight for animal rights involves assigning personhood to animals we need to re-examine our priorities.

First Political Memory

The Young Foundation is inviting people to share their first political memory. The First Political Memory Project aims to: reconnect people’s everyday lives with politics through collecting and sharing stories of when people first became aware of the bigger world around them.

We need to be consistent in our condemnation of the BNP and its supporters. If the party is racist then so are its followers and maybe its time to revoke its political party status
