Awesome name, awesome site!
femonade isnt a real thing, i made it up. but it evokes a cool, refreshing experience, escapist and yet fundamentally corporeal. and thats exactly how i think – and what i love – about feminist scholarship.
epistemology means “the making of knowledge” and yet, most people dont realize that everything we know, and every piece of information in every book or every brain was, at some point, created. who made this stuff up, how, why, and is it really true? – are all questions that need asking. feminists and other social critics are asking them, and finding answers.
for those whose intellect or personality is wilting under the dry, white heat of patriarchy and misogyny – and for those who are being boiled alive – dissecting and examining the source of our pain is exquisitely refreshing. feminism is the study of power, not of women, women are not lab rats to be studied so get over it. feminist studies reaches across all other academic fields, and is relevant to each and every transaction any of us have ever made. because of that, its endlessly fascinating.
