Following #WomenWallKerala protest & entry by 2 women into #Sabarimala Hindu temple for 1st time since #Indian Supreme Court lifted ban on women of “menstruating age” I’m writing about time I prayed while menstruating (during Amina Wadud’s historic mixed gender prayer NYC 2005)
Writing about it in chapter on Power in my new book. I am not interested in “Who gave you permission?” I gave myself permission. I took it. Amina Wadud leading mixed-gender Friday prayer was revolutionary and I decided to pray behind her without a headscarf and on my period.
Menstrution remains a taboo and a source of at times deadly consequences of patriarchal notions that it makes us “impure.” I am not “impure.” I am just as I’m supposed to be. I am not interested in arguing with anyone about this. I own my body and I gave myself this permission.
