THREAD.

I was asked today to share my thoughts on the potential effect of what appears to be a mass exodus of talented #women from the #corporate world.

I thought perhaps it was a good time for a history lesson.

We don't have to wonder about the potential, we've already seen it. The last US recession impacted a lot of people (maybe except the bankers who caused it), but it hit women of color hardest. #truth #WOC

It represented one of the greatest losses of wealth in recent history and the demographic that was hit hardest is now the single most entrepreneurial group in the nation, women of color. Coincidence? Nope.

Dr Brittney Cooper: Eloquent Rage. In conversation with journalist Santilla Chingaipe

Dr Cooper is a first generation university graduate and is motivated by using her research and practice to bring conversations about dismantling patriarchy in everyday life, not just in class Dr Cooper sits on a couch next to Santilla Chingaipe
Dr Cooper sees young Black women & other women of colour struggling with the term feminism because of White women's racism. There are other excellent practices that challenge this (e.g. womanism), but Dr Cooper invites #WOC not to throw away the history of our liberation... 1/2
...White women did NOT invent feminism. White women's involvement in gender liberation grows from them watching Indigenous & Black women's organising. The Women's March was a direct result of other mass movements organised by #WOC - e.g. Arab Spring, #BlackLivesMatter

So about a million people have asked me about @lesbiantech and the issue re: speakers fees and tickets.

Here's a thread, and prepare yourself for it to be a classic Aubrey Middle Way Response.
First, I do think when possible that events should pay speakers. I also believe that it is absolutely fine for people to agree to speak for no payment (I do this often, and yes I get the privilege I enjoy for being able to do so).
Other things:
-Public speaking is work
-Companies and individuals get value from being on stage and/or sponsoring events (this includes the value to individual employees who get to attend / participate)

I have spoken at LWT SF multiple times, and Atlassian has covered my tix.

How does a White Australian woman sociologist lay a claim to decolonising sociology without throughly engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women & femme scholarship? Without discussing fellow sociologist Prof Aileen Moreton-Robinson? journals.sagepub.com/stoken/default…
How does a White woman sociologist ignore Australian women of colour who specialise in critical race and ethnicity studies? How does she put herself forward as an expert in decolonising knowledge when her body of work has pretty much ignored race?
How does a White woman academic get published on decolonising sociology without critical engagement with the concepts of race & racism - let alone reflecting deeply and critically with her own Whiteness and how her career has benefited from racial inequality baked into academia?
