About me:

I think it's important to look at even the most mundane things through a feminist and gender theory lens. I love film, traveling (especially to Argentina), and cooking.

Exhibit change by:

EVERYTHING CHANGES

Everything changes. You can make
A fresh start with your final
breath.
But what has happened has
happened. And the water
You once poured into the wine
cannot be
Drained off again.

What has happened has happened.
The water
You once poured into the wine
cannot be
Drained off again, but
Everything changes. You can make
A fresh start with your final
breath.

-Bertolt Brecht

MUSEUM PICK <br/>The Barefoot Approach

Filmmaker Sumithra Prasanna visits a unique institution in India that relies on community members, rather than experts, to help solve local problems. She found when the community was given the authority to solve their own problems, confidence rose, gender relations improved and a ripple effect of positive changes occurred.

From Economica:

Artist Mariana Castro De Ali uses bird migration as a metaphor for the ordeal immigrants face daily. Whether they are being hunted by governments or law enforcement, weighed down by debt and unemployment, or facing a lack of social services, immigrants must do what it takes to survive.

From Economica:

I.M.O.W. Global Council member Dolores Huerta sat down with the I.M.O.W. team to discuss how women's leadership is needed at every level--from individual households and workplaces to trade unions and national government--to steer a new direction for the economy. Huerta co-founded the U.S.-based United Farm Workers union with César Chávez and is currently the president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, which specializes in community organizing. Through her life-long dedication to social justice, Huerta has enabled enormous advances in both the labor and women's movements.
