I am so honored and grateful to have been a part of @unhwomensstudies #FeministSummit today with @feministoasis! Every detail was thoughtfully planned down to my favorite element: the tables each named for a feminist we should know. I was at the Ruth Bader Ginsberg table (!!) with some new wonderful friends. Our "feminist self care" workshop ran twice and both times, the entire room opened up with a vulnerability that humbled me. One of my favorite self care tips was a lovely walk in the woods… To scream threapuetically at a lake! Also a lot of sharing about common guilt and shame around self care practice, acknowledging that self care looks different and is less accessible for different folks – and is not a commodity! Thanks to the many others who have taught me about #feministselfcare including Angela Davis, Audrey Lorde, @doctorjonpaul,, @thenapministry, @onbeinginyourbody, @carmenriosss, @tianaclarkypants @fridafund @adriennemareebrown @blackfeministfitness and many others. What a day!! And yes, @daisyofthegranitestate was in my slide deck. ❤️🐶 Thank you so much @avary.thorne and the whole team who pulled this off! And to my fellow presenters @hannahjmathieu @tavion_d_og777 @maryjohannabrown @deranged_hedgehog who all shared great stories, wisdom, inspiration and insight. ✨❤️✨
