What does the Michael Brown shooting have to do with feminism? Hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon discussed the topic of police brutality and feminism in the second half of the Council of Feminism Thought with writer Mikki Kendall and comedienne and burlesque performer Tamale Sepp.
“Black women, Latino women, Native American women- we are all supposed to be part of this. Our communities are being harmed by police brutality. Not only are the women dying, the children are dying, their husbands are dying, their brothers their uncles. The people they love are being killed… it should be a feminist issue because if we’re talking equality and we want equality, well equality includes not being killed for the color of your skin.”
