🇮🇳 #Rewrite History #RoleModels Warrior Woman Of India - Onake Obavva & Chitradurga Fort, Karnataka - One that remains etched in history for the heroic tale of the wife of a common soldier in the army of local ruler Madakari Nayaka-Valiant Onake Obavva who defeated HyderAli🚩1/4 ImageImage
🚩 2. Onake Obavva-The Brave woman who single-handedly killed many soldiers of Hyder Ali with just a big pestle as they were trying to crawl out of a secret passage.
Her husband was eating his lunch while she was on a killing spree🚩 Image
🚩3. Courageous Onake Obbava did not call him out because she believed that disturbing him while he was having food was not right. She was ultimately killed before she could get through the entire contingent, but her efforts ensured that Chitradurga fort was defended that day 🚩 Image

So ready for this amazing #HDLS14 panel on "Race, racism and racialization in sign language research" organized by @linasigns and @jaceyhill starring @_CooLDP @munimuninianna and Dominic Harrison (are you on Twitter Dominic?)
.@linasigns starts of with a powerful reminder and acknowledgment about the constant presence of violence and oppression against BIPOC people in this country and how BIPOC scholars are forced to exist in spaces which thrive on white supremacy and settler colonialism #HDLS14
UNM's @_CooLDP situates us within Intersectionality Frameworks such as #BlackFeministDisbility (Bailey& Mobley 2018) #BlackDeafFeminist (Chapple 2019) & outlines different branches of #CriticalRaceTheory showing each highlights different facets of intersectionality #HDLS14

The number of dichotomies attached to being a woman are incredible: we're different, but we're not. We need to have empathy, control and strength, but not too much. We can have children, yet we're 'odd' if we don't. The list goes on and on... #women #leadership #truth #MWFdigital
Love the wide ranging leadership styles of the women in @JuliaGillard and @NOIweala's book. Diverse, strong, powerful influencers who are smashing barriers, breaking new ground, shattering all ceilings and refusing to relent. Outstanding! 💪🏽💪🏾 #MWFdigital #leadership #rolemodels
Dynamo @PatsKarvelas shares with @JuliaGillard she is still troubled by Jacinda Ardern sharing that had she entered politics in Australia, things may not have turned out the same way due to our media/system. Jacinda may not have entered politics in Australia. 😱 #MWFdigital

I've reached the stage in my career where I'm receiving invitations to speak about #EDI #Indigenization #Decolonization from the same institutions that also declined to interview me for TT positions... umm, let's unpack/unwind this with a meandering🧵
I need to be clear, as a white/white-coded Métis and Cree scientist, I experience relatively little marginalization, certainly non-comparable to other BIPOC scholars (perhaps more for my gay and two-spirit identities, especially when younger)
I recognize the privilege/advantage being white and male has afforded my education (that's a whole thread on its own) -- But I also see how my work with #EDI and esp. #Decolonization and #Indigenization of botany/science is simultaneously desired yet undervalued for advancement

At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit
