Today starts the 2nd #advent list to honor BIWOC this month. We’ll be learning a bit abt a different BIWOC’s work each day. Bookmark the thread. More of a mix of premodern, CRT & some STEM scholars this year.

#medievaltwitter #shakerace #adventcalender #citeblackwomen
Like last year, it'll be impossible to mention all the amazing WoC scholars. This is just a starter pack &you all should be finding, reading & citing these women et al. If I missed anyone, nothing personal. I’ll try &catch you next time. #citeblackwomen
Day1: Adrienne Merritt @BlackPhDE is a fierce medievalist & German Studies scholar. Her areas of expertise vary from Old English to late medieval mystical writings, decolonial theories, identity & inclusion of marginalized students/scholars within German Studies. 1/

MWCD Report (2019-20) states that out of 728 One Stop Centres, only 595 are currently operational.
It is the State's responsibility to protect and promote our Human Rights and Dignity!

Union Budget 2020-21 allocates a mere 0.8% (Rs.7986.34Cr.) for Dalit women and 0.34% (Rs. 3174.91Cr.) for Adivasi women from the total eligible Centrally Sponsored Schemes and Central Sector Schemes! Budget Justice??

@PriyankaSamy @ncdhr @dalitwomenrise
Almost 46,000 crimes were registered against Dalits in 2019 but the conviction rates are only 28%. Sexual violence on Dalit women reveals a pattern of impunity enjoyed by dominant caste State & nonstate perpetrators.

*An appeal to NON-autistic people: please take a few moments to read this thread*

We (#Neurodivergent people) were taught early in life that everything YOU (#Allistics) said and did was what WE (#Autistics etc) had to aspire to.

We weren’t even told an alternative existed. 1/9
Our #Autism was suppressed before we knew the word for it.

When we protested, we were met with punishment and ostracism.

When we suffered in silence, we were never rewarded for protecting YOU from our *legitimate* anger.

We were converted to #AutisticMasking to survive. 2
All children need mirroring for healthy development. We #Autistics received very little.

Our talents were often not recognized or acknowledged. If they were, it was not for our benefit, but for yours.

Our faults were all noted and attributed to us alone. 3

The Netflix film "The Social Dilema" provides a mass audience for critiques of social media surveillance but gives tech bros a platform to absolve themselves and no voice to the women scholars who have worked for years on these issues. @safiyanoble @ruha9…
I liked the part in the film "The Social Dilema" where they pushed on past the simplistic slogan that "If the product is free then you are the product" to Lanier's re-formulation "the product is actually imperceptibly small and unconscious changes in your beliefs and behaviour".
The film makes a valuable contribution by using Netflix to popularise how surveillance capitalists use social media to identify our psychological vulnerabilities and triggers in order to profit from suruptiously shaping our consciousness, consumption and voting behaviours.

So pleased to be able to bring my workshop - Working withIN diversity - to another cohort of counsellors. Exploring identity, intersectionality, power, privilege & oppression. #workingwithindiversity #intersectionality #counselling Image
Exploring positions of oppression and power. Something which exists in the counselling/therapeutic professions & practice. Can be experienced as microaggressions, criticising or dismissing an 'other's' experiences, work, success, projects or progress. Professional envy is real! Image
Our afternoon discussion - what impact do you think #intersectionality might have on the counselling process, therapeutic relationship and presenting problem? #counselling #identity Image

This is your friendly reminder that PUBLIC COMMENT for ANA's revision of its scope & standards of nursing practice document is OPEN THROUGH MIDNIGHT SEPT 16

2/ In which Dr. Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw's name is *misspelled* & her concept of #intersectionality explained as: "nurses can better understand how certain aspects of a person will increase their access to good things or their openness to bad things in life", page 24 line 750.
3/ In which Jamaican nurse #MarySeacole is described as a "less well known but also a notable historic nurse, served with Florence Nightingale in Crimea." [not historically accurate, racism prevented Seacole from serving *with* FN, she had to go on her own], page 26 line 814.

Looking forward to delivering this one-day workshop/training to a national counselling service today! #counselling #therapy #training Image
When we say 'working with', what we are actually doing and being in, is a Relationship. So both my idenity and the identity of the other person are present and in relationship with one another #relationships #intersectionality #diversity Image
In #counselling it's important we understand, explore and reflect on our own and our client's intersectionality, and the relationship dynamic created between the two. Great discussion in our morning session addressing those systems of oppression and our #intersectionality. Image

It’s #RecoveryMonth, can we normalize consent and self-disclosure?

STOP asking people their recovery status.
STOP asking people if they use drugs.

It’s none of your business. People will disclose identities if they want to and feel safe to do so.

🧵 1/7
Being in abstinence recovery vs self-defined recovery vs actively using are all legitimate.

There shouldn’t be stigma around those identities but there is. Especially active use.

Shaming people off medications (MOUD, medical cannabis, psych meds, etc) is literally deadly.
Just because it isn’t your view of “recovery” doesn’t delegitimize it. It kills.

I’m sick of the recovery hierarchy of “abstinence recovery” being seen as superior or the only way.

You see my faith before my profession. You see my ethnicity before my qualifications. You see my gender before my clincial experience. You see my age before my accolades. To say therapy isn't social justice or political guess what, its not a choice. You can't eradicate my Truth.
If I am Seen, my Clients are Seen. If I can accept my Truth, I can accept my Client's Truth.

No Counsellor/Therapist is 'neutral' in the room. Our visible identity (ethnicity, gender, faith, age, ability/disability etc) can't be removed, dismissed, ignored, made invisible. Our identity is reacted/related/responded to (consciously/unconsciously). It's how we work with it.

#AutisticWhileBlack #AutisticAphorism the deadliest assault on #DisabilitySolidarity began the moment #DisabilityJustice was co-opted and conflated with social justice and disability rights. 1/
The only path forward is to #ReclaimDisabilityJustice. This is exactly what professor Kimberlé Crenshaw did by firmly reiterating her original definition and it's intended purpose when her term #Intersectionality was co-opted and conflated out of control. 2/
Before it's too late, #ReclaimDisabilityJustice as it was conceived by the founding group that includes @kriphopnation. This is as simple as using the term correctly. Start… 3/

To echo others #OnHere (@Jessifer @Dr_Whomever et al) #nursing/#higherEd should critically examine unstated assumptions around the value, process & structural inequities embedded in grading, & adopt emancipatory & #ungrading approaches that actually support learning. #MsTeachWGSS
2/ Also there is practically no justification whatsoever for timed exams. It’s a major #accessibility issue that systematically advantages/disadvantages folx based on ability & disability, internet access & equipment, & other forms of privilege #MsTeachWGSS
3/ Loretta Ross presenting now - emphasizing strengths that learners bring to the classroom, co-designing syllabi, incorporating community organizing approaches into the Academy. 💜💜💜 #MsTeachWGSS

This is finna be a thread on the pushback against White Fragility.
As books on racism take over the bestseller lists, there’s inevitable debate about which books make it there & whether they deserve it. I commented on the critique re: “How to Be Antiracist” a few days ago. Now let’s talk about White Fragility.
I am a clinical psychologist, as is Robin DiAngelo. Never met her but admired her work for a good 15+ years. She’s been doing it since before it was profitable or popular.

Being able to participate in any activity, hobby, interest or sport, without thinking of how you will be treated, perceived or stated at, out of suspicion or curiosity, or a sense of 'you don't belong here' and never feeling the 'odd one out' is a privilege #WhitePrivilege
To teach and talk about structural inequalities in society, to understand & work with our client's lived experiences, is to understand these internal feelings of not belonging, lack of access and inclusion, being treated & related to as 'not the norm' or unusual... (2)
Because the 'norm' is where YOU are at on the power-powerless spectrum of society and I am not on the same place on that spectrum. So if at the privilege end, your privilege becomes your norm by default. Still makes it a privilege though! (3)

Who wants to see the #Diversity data for @STFC_Matters, that was released by @UKRI_News last week?

The full data release is here, so if you want to see anything for yourself, go ahead:…
@STFC_Matters funds research & training into astronomy, particle physics, space & planetary sciences & nuclear physics. This is important because @ukhesa only report STFC as #physics – it’s so much more!

STFC have a #equality & #diversity statement here:…
So, let’s start with @STFC_Matters #ethnicity data.

Worth noting that @UKRI_News collate three categories; ethnic minority, white, not disclosed.

We can’t separate out different ethnicity, which is a problem in itself. Image

Signing off for good - need to finish getting ready for Day 1! This #BWMTakeover has been a true honor and an awakening. I will leave you today with the following:
1) A collective #BLM statement from myself and the other three class presidents at @OHSUSOM - I am amazed and inspired by how the students at my alma mater have mobilized in the wake of #Covid_19 and the murder of #GeorgeFloyd - I want to see them keep the momentum going. -MH
2) The inspirational faculty remarks delivered by @choo_ek for my virtual hooding ceremony - Dr. Choo is a true leader for our times and I am beyond grateful that our paths crossed.

The recognition that psychology/therapy/counselling sits within political, societal, cultural, prejudiced structures needs to be addressed and highlighted, ironically it needing to be addressed within the very training which doesn't acknowledge it! (1)
Not helped by lack of representation of diversity across all levels of profession (clinical, policy and teaching/training roles) and professional bodies, to address structural inequalities within profession & across society (2)
To sit with any single client in therapy, is to acknowledge their lived experience and therefore their pain, trauma, hurt and distress, within a prejudiced, racist, structurally unequal system. All of us exist along those spectrums whether at the privileged or prejudiced end.(3)

We are back to #intersectionality with @CLPRtrust. I’m still reading Patricia Williams, The Alchemy of Race and Rights. Of all the chapters, ‘The Obliging Shell,’ i feel, has the most resonance with us here. The chapter scrutinises the idea of standards and how it scrutinises us.
Standards, writes Prof Williams, are subjective paths that are made into the only paths; thereby stifling creativity. And while this seems like individual-talk, Prof W is actually interested in the resistance to equal opportunity on grounds of freedom, individuality and denial.
Has slavery ended if we feel equality should be neutral and “if they had the same qualifications” it shouldn’t matter choosing between the white person and the black person? Is the black person or “the rest of the slaves less enslaved by calling enslavement freedom?”

#FridayFeeling throwback to a beautiful moment of solidarity from last month's #SayEnoughAsia Skillshop where campaigners & activists from across Asia shared strategies on countering backlash, building inclusive movements & bringing their A-game to campaigning to end #VAWG ✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼 Image

This thread is for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. One step is to learn as much as you can about #WhiteSupremacy & #WhitePrivilege. Read! #BlackHistoryMonth2020
Do you know the history of the Civil Rights movement? You could start by reading vol 1 of "America in the King Years," "Parting the Waters" by @taylorbranch.…
@taylorbranch In 1962, the Civil Rights Commission was going to make a very strong statement about racism. Politically, it would be problematic for President Kennedy. JFK was told "It is legal for the police to use dogs." So, turn to "Afro-Dog" next.…
