Sara Ahmed, The Promise of Happiness
Always interesting to read Sara Ahmed’s thoughts. Her work on postcolonialism and feminist theory invoke important critical thinking on both subjects. What’s even more interesting is how Sara - half Pakistani, half English - discusses ingenuity and scholarship in terms of feminism, racism and queer studies. “Embodied Others in Post-Coloniality” by her is an essential read. I’d love to take her interview soon.
Men had no problem violating women’s bodies while they had on corsets, petticoats and farthingales, so what the fuck makes you think a short skirt has anything to do with it?
Men also have no problem violating women’s bodies while they wear a niqab, hijab and burqa, some of the most covered form of clothing. So basically, what the fuck makes you think clothes have anything to do with it?
