A short thread:

Many in the US can be very insular. And even those who are international have imperial filters so the rest of the world is to be feared/discovered/saved.

This is why it needs saying: Kavanaugh is vile and should never have been confirmed. But it’s a long war!
Also let’s pay attention:

A woman - Nadia Murad -who had been held in sexual slavery and survived and works against SV got the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday.
Women in India are speaking up and speaking out in numbers and in ways that are unprecedented.

And this summer the 377 judgement laid down the principle of ‘bodily sovereignty.’

Think closely on what that means.
And did you see #TotalShutdown by South African women this summer?

And tech innovators met this past week in Ghana to devise solutions for the digital gender gap.
Across the world, there are initiatives and campaigns and extraordinary women’s actions leading the fight against patriarchy.

This is also part of decolonisation. Change. Revolution. Next gen feminism will not be white, western. And that is good.
So Kavanaugh confirmation is appalling. But one battle does not make a war.

Look elsewhere. There are many points of light. There are many fighting the patriarchy. There are many small and large battles across the globe.

We are winning quite a few of those!
Btw this is not just a thread about hope. Hope works only when WE keep working.

So this is a call to arms. We win when we keep organising, working, fighting, advocating.
Btw also a reminder that Dr. Donna Strickland also won a Nobel Prize. In Physics.

That’s TWO women Nobel laureates in the same year.

To quote Dickens, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times....”
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness.......
Such are the joys are travails of living in revolutionary times!

We can only do our part. And our biggest challenge and achievement is not give in to despair!
Btw, this also happened last week. That's another glass ceiling broken: ewn.co.za/2018/10/03/git…
