You’re Invited: “Feminist Enough” NYC Filming
Shannon Washington, creative visionary and co-founder of one of my favorite online destinations, Parlour Magazine, launched the Feminist Enough project in late 2012/2013 with hopes of igniting a breath of fresh, fly air when it came to women of color and feminism. And just like that, it worked! The videos were shared on a scale that Shannon could not have imagined, sparked plenty of talk and showed that there really is a need for this content. The goal of the project is two-fold:
1. To actively show and embrace the intersection of feminism and culture when it comes to black and brown women.
2. To promote contemporary, positive and dynamic images of black and brown women that younger women and men can relate to in hopes to open their minds to embrace feminism and/or it’s personal and social value.
And unofficially….to show that feminism is for everyone.
The project is comprised largely of unscripted video testimonials from a variety of women edited down into quick, shareable videos and “quoted” art work:
