i am not sure why this needs to be said but: just because a woman is powerful does not make her a feminist nor does it make her a feminist icon if she doesn’t use that power to liberate other women. 

to say or imply otherwise is to buy into propaganda and to have a belief in trickle-down empowerment is to say that other women’s lives are worth less than your own.

schools in Ferguson area will remain close until next week and many students are falling behind

The strength of the Ferguson community in the face of the war zone the police have created is truly a thing of beauty.
