“ A frequent response to those who resist exclusive language is that they are intellectually lazy” – Aurora Levins Morales

Aurora is an organic intellectual feminist, however, in the last paragraphs of her contribution for Telling To Live, she writes about an important discourse. This quote in particular called to my attention, because just yesterday(03/08/2017) International Women’s day we were touching upon this topic. Within every movement that we wish to enter as a woman it means leaving behind, and closing doors to another one. For example, if I was to join a feminist movement dealing with reproductive policy rights, the fact is that I might not be able to also join a Latina, Black or Muslim reproductive rights policy, the point is that within every struggle women’s must face there are so many categories to this.

How is it possible that there are still so many things to accomplish?

Theories:

  • Mostly white men in higher position of power.
  • Women also dedicate to motherhood, which takes time and energy away from other purposes.
