Now a 21 year old college student who started this blog because I am a Pan-Africanist at heart. This blog focuses on my interest in African and Pan-African topics. It is what I come across daily, what I learn in African and African American Studies and most importantly information I would like to share with whoever stumbles across this blog. I am Nigerian/Cameroonian by ethnicity and American by nationality. Following my heart and leaving my footprints in the sand one step at a time. <3
What do you see as the biggest barrier to young women connecting to feminism today?
The word itself comes with such bad baggage. You’ll have women who if you listed out major ideas of gender equality, they would agree with them, but then if you said, “are you a feminist?,” they’d say “no.” That’s one of the reasons I wanted to use the word feminism. [I wanted to] talk to young people, and say, “forget the history of the word and the baggage it carries, and think about the idea of it.”
