from girl rising …to consider on international women’s day (and every day thereafter)
I find it odd that these images are shown to people living in the US, but none of them are from the US, when these are issues that affect US women as well. I just worry that US men will use these images to reinforce their racism and xenophobia.
But that aside, these are so important.
This is a good point. Violence and oppression of women IS something that happens abroad but it’s also something that happens in the US. This isn’t other countries being more backwards than us, this is an international problem which we’re included in.
