Feminist Resolutions for 2011

  • Speak up, stand up for myself and others, and always ask questions
  • Read black and other women of color feminist zines
  • Educate myself, and inform others about why feminism is relevant
  • Smash the patriarchy
  • DIY, recycle, and buy local
  • Be a riot grrrl
  • Fight all oppression I encounter
  • Participate in consciousness-raising
  • Combat rape culture
  • Support my local  women’s basketball and other women’s sports teams
  • Love my body and encourage others to love theirs
  • Boycott, resist, and protest when the situation calls for it
  • Maintain awareness of the ways race, class, gender, and sexuality intersect
  • Analyze my motivations and be proud of my choices
  • Volunteer at a domestic violence shelter or as a clinic escort
  • Validate my fears and feelings
  • Listen, support, and love

I will also be continuing my work as a board member at our local Pride community center, in hopes of smashing the male-centered ideologies that have permeated our local LGBT community.
