About Your Blogger

I am a feminist and vegetarian environmentalist. I strive for equality for all human beings in a world where many groups are marginalized, specifically women. I don’t eat meat because it is one of the most important ways to save our Earth from the destruction that our unequal human power systems cause. I try to follow practices which promote my feminist and environmental goals because I believe it is the best way to make my world a place I want to be. Sometimes I feel like I succeed and sometimes I screw up.

I created Feminist Vegetables because of woman warrior poet Audre Lorde. She writes, “When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.”

The intersections between feminism and environmentalism are many and they interact in our lives in a very real way. I want to speak/write about it.
