“Are you “Feminist Enough?” Who sez?
When Shannon Washington invited women of color to speak their truths about feminism, she set off a controversy that has gone viral. Her blog and video series challenges popular and mainstream views of what feminism is and what a feminist should look like. And she features women delivering their own personal manifestos.
From that point of departure, our in studio guests Felicia Montes and Caroline Heldman are taking off.
Felicia ‘Fe’ Montes is a Xicana Indigenous artist, activist, academic, community & event organizer, educator, femcee, designer, poet, and performer living and working in the Los Angeles area. An established Xicana cultural worker of a new generation, she has worked on various transnational art and organizing efforts from Chiapas to LA. Fe is the co-founder and coordinating member of Mujeres de Maiz, In Lak Ech and Urban Xic.
