New Category Coming Soon: Personal is Political – The Feminist Wire

New Category Coming Soon: Personal is Political

categoryimage-picture-personal-political-23.jpg.311x370_q100_crop_upscaleThis column honors personal narrative as a source of politics, analysis, pedagogy, and survival. Thus, in keeping with the feminist legacy of naming the private and personal as sites that are no less political than the public, we are committed to making space for explicating and interrogating the interior lives of feminists, as well as providing the space necessary to offer self-reflexive analyses. We will publish first-person essays, autobiographical accounts, memoir, and other forms that pay homage to and elevate feminist lives, lived experiences, and stories.

This column will debut on Tuesday, January 28.

    So happy to see this. This is so great, especially for women who have been told (explicitly or implicitly) that their own stories don’t matter or that their stories don’t have a place in academia.

    Great addition. Particularly as this where the feminist journey begins, somewhere personal before we articulate externally-before we name it.
