Your Mid-Week Feminist Inspiration!

It’s Wednesday. You’re half way through the work week. So if you need a little inspiration, we’ve recommend the following.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDx TALK
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian novelist and feminist, who in 2013 inspired women around the world. Her “We should all be feminists” TEDx Talk made the cases for why all everyone should be feminist, but also challenged us to all look how our gender constructions function and perpetuate injustice. 

Let Beyoncé’s Flawless, Grown Woman and Formation Inspire You
Beyoncé is an artist and activist. She’s also a fearless feminist! These are some of our favourite feminist Beyoncé tunes.

Flawless ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  samples parts of Adichie’s TEDx Talk. 

Grown Woman will help you shake off any mid-week slump and get you walking with a vengeance.

Everyone’s heard a lot about Queen Bey’s latest song and video Formation. But what’s been lost in all the fearful chatter is that not only is this a great song that will get you wanting to get into formation, but the video was directed by Beyoncé. To watch Beyoncé’s video Formation click here.

M.I.A.’s Bad Girls

M.I.A. (Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam) is an English musician, activist, visual artist and director. Her song Bad Girls makes pretty much every list of top feminist anthems.

Enjoy! Check back later this week as we continue to spotlight, post information and links a about the contributions of Black women in recognition and celebration of Black History Month.
