Connecticut College students publish essays in response to professor’s question: ‘Why are you here?’ at The Feminist Wire, 01/17/2014

In her feminist theory course this fall, Professor Shubhra Sharma asked students what seemed like a simple question: Why are you here?

“They replied, ‘I don’t understand. What do you mean why am I here?’ As if the answer was apparent to everyone including them, when in fact it was not apparent at all,” Sharma, the Vandana Shiva Assistant Professor and chair of Gender and Women’s Studies at Connecticut College, wrote in a post on The Feminist Wire, an online pro-feminism news site.

  • Remembering and Honoring Toni Cade Bambara Sanchez

    Sonia Sanchez: What are we pretending not to know today? The premise as you said, my sister, being that colored people on planet earth really know everything there is to know. And if one is not coming to grips with the knowledge, it must mean that one is either scared or pretending to be stupid.

    They say you had the eye; they say you saw
    into people. They say you came before as shaman
    or bruja and returned as priestess; they say you were

    Grace, Bambara; they could have called you that.
