In 2016, @roxglick asked Women's Gathering attendees to describe how they smash patriarchy. She published the results on @bust_magazine. Over the next couple days, we'll be posting some of our favorite photos from that project. Here's Alexis, a frequent Twin Oaks guest. It's not too late to be featured: DM us your "I smash patriarchy by" pics! . . . #smashpatriarchy #womensgathering #towomgath #womensgathering18 #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving #twinoakscommunity

#regram from @twinoaksqueergathering: Reminder to keep our queer activism intersectional. QTPOC have born the heaviest burdens of our movement, but are the first to be thrown under the bus. Happy #pride to those of us who still live in fear.

Daily reminder that your body is yours alone. For hundreds of years, women's bodies and time have been seen as public commodities. Fatphobia and beauty policing is so rampant because women's bodies must me marketable objects rather than subjectivities within themselves. Here is a reminder that saying "no" can be an act of self-love, of radical political defiance.

Meet the organizers!! Raised in Virginia, Emily came to live at Twin Oaks after attending the Women’s Gathering. After a long stretch of employment as a landscaper, she has come to enjoy communing with plant life in the forms of growing organic veggies in the garden, herbalism and spending time in the woods. A life long musician, she uses performance to come out of her shell. . . . #womenincharge #womensgathering #womensgathering18 #towomgath #intentionalcommunity #virginian #gardener #herbalist #musicianforlife #beltane

In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, we'll also be sharing the profiles of some incredible feminists who have paved our way. Gloria Anzaldúa (1942-2004) was a Chicana feminist icon and scholar whose work continues to inform and inspire intersectional feminist theory today. As a lesbian growing up on the Texas side of the US-Mexico border, she experienced oppression both from the racism, homophobia, and misogyny of white American culture and from her own community's expectations of what a woman should be. Her 1987 book Borderlands/La Frontera explores life on thresholds, using English, Spanish, and even some Nahuatl to describe history & her place within it. Most importantly, Anzaldúa sought to be a bridge between her multiple cultures, hoping to close the "herrida abierta" of the tense Us/Mexico border. In times like these, her work seems more relevant than ever.
