I will end this month’s Newsletter with the monthly piece I like, this time by Roxane Gay:
” When you can’t find someone to follow, you have to find a way to lead by example. […], I’m trying to lead, in a small, imperfect way. I am raising my voice as a bad feminist. I am taking a stand as a bad feminist.
I offer insights on our culture and how we consume it. The essays in this collection also examine race in contemporary films, the limits of ‘diversity’, and how innovation is rarely satisfying; it is rarely enough. These essays are political and they are personal. They are, like feminism, flawed, but they come from a genuine place.
I am just one woman trying to make sense of this world we live in. I am raising my voice to show all the ways we have room to want more, to do better.”
