Welcome to our Thank a Feminist Issue!
We are happy to introduce a new editorial year of Re/Visionist! The editors wanted to begin the 2013-2014 academic year on a note of gratitude, so we decided to devote our entire Sept./Oct. issue to thanking the feminist inspirations in our lives.
The inspirational people/ideas/icons included in this issue are from both the past and present; some we know well, some we admire from afar. Some are self-identified feminists, others would not use that label. In a world hostile to feminism and queerness, what matters more than what our inspiration looks like is finding it in ways both expected and unexpected.
This month features:
- Two pieces by Re/Visionist co-editor Tiffany Williams about 20th-century artist Millicent Fredericks and activist/partner, Kamau Nkosi
- A letter from Re/Visionist web editor Carly Fox to her brother James about his feminism
- A collage from contributor Kate Amunrud reflecting her gratitude to her feminist icon–her mother
- A letter from contributor Jessica Lynne about her Grandma’s unknowing plight in feminism
- A letter from contributor Nicole McCormick where she gives thanks to Bruce Lansky for allowing her to enter new imaginary spaces
- A poem by Blake Williams about his feminist inspiration
