feminism starts at a different place for everyone. for some, it begins as early as developing your sense of identity, and for others, it crystallizes through perspectives only gained through experiences. i fell in the latter. growing up in a coastal city, with bi-racial parents who both worked full time jobs and equally distributed chores, i grew up never doubting that my gender could financially, socially or politically hinder me. identifying with feminism stemmed from a privilege of knowing i would not be nurtured less because of my gender. but in the last year, that bubble shattered. while navigating through the ideological aftermath, hearing the various experiences and perspectives of @zarna @ericachidicohen @yazminmonetwatkins @alexiwasser was an uplifting reminder of listening and the enduring power of active conversations. and so i turn the question to you: is there a universal experience of womanhood? how do you define it?
