Out here on these mean streets again. #35mm
Back in New York for 4 days tomorrow. Feeling grateful and excited to be with some very special people again soon. ❤️
2 weeks until I go back.
Currently feeling incredibly inspired by the display of support for women, inclusion, and curbing exploitation that was amplified by the poignant #timesup campaign last night. Despite Hollywood’s predilection for selling a specific brand of celebrity feminism that reifies the privileged and tends to make them the centre of the narrative, I was impressed to see women come together across ages, cultures, and disciplines to unify with activists like Marai Larasi and Tarana Burke who are doing such great work as intersectional feminist activists. So much of the conversation that we see about feminism happens in fractured online spaces where messages are half-heard, half-read, miscommunicated, or misinformed, often doing more to divide us than to unite us; however, the overwhelming feeling of hope and joy that transpired yesterday when farmworkers, actresses, producers, domestic workers, lawyers, artists, activists, and everyday people coalesced around the idea of ending sexual violence, was powerful and unifying. Women supporting women through tangible initiatives that go beyond symbolism and superficiality and transcend divides - this is what brings me hope (and left me drying my eyes during more than one speech, lol). It’s easy to be negative and to sit online and criticise, but it’s better to seek hope and to take action. In addition to @timesupnow’s legal defence fund, other organisations doing great work in this area (that we should all totally support) include Incite! Women of Colour Against Violence, Native Women’s Association of Canada, RAINN, End Violence Against Women Coalition, and Girls for Gender Equity. Uplift, believe, and walk with survivors, and better yet, create a culture where, as Queen Oprah said, we never have to say “me too” again.
