Have you seen the latest issue of Ms. magazine? I’m pretty proud of our cover (I’m senior editor of the magazine, if you didn’t know)–we take Prez Barack at his literal word that he’s a feminist, and we also let him know that we’re holding him to it!
I try to imagine Laura Nyro in one of our “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like” T-shirts–well, it’s hard to imagine Laura in any sort of T-shirt, but I can picture one filled with trees. Her feminism always seemed connected directly to the earth, and to the goddesses. I think it’s good for all of us to step back from the concrete and turmoil of politics sometimes and go back to the loamy soil of ecofeminism. Love Mother Earth. Appreciate the interconnectedness of each of us, along with all the flora and fauna. Trust the tides, the deep deep wisdom of the planet. Tread lightly. Practice “enoughism.”
But don’t forget to make your voice heard against injustice and for the equality and empowerment and care of all. That’s my Laura thought for the day.
