Great mentions to legal vs societal contradictions. The penalties for digital violence go up to three years in prison but many women are unaware of the provisions of this law. Also loved the mention to feminist movements who widely criticized this law for its shortcomings.
I felt all the spirits of my ancestors uniting to let me know through this article that "no one gets their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of their oppressor" This is an everyday reminder that respectability will never smash the partiarchy.
I wrote this to hold space for feminists organizing on digital platforms, and to allow ourselves to have a vision of a feminist Internet and build collectivism to actualize this vision.
I loved this because it affirmed the need for having connected movements to end NCII because our stories are different, yet so similar.
Perfect for listening, pausing and engaging in self-reflection on exactly what type of self-care practise would work for you.
Having witnessed the capitalistic co-opting of self-care practises, this article was a breath of fresh air because it really takes the time to break down what wholesome self-care really is, especially for activists on the frontline who often experience burn-out.
Selecting this because it energized me to keep organizing, and ground my life on feminist practise. I hope it inspires everybody else too, in different ways, but especially to set us on a path of resistance.
