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

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!! Hailing from Oregon, Lindsey moved to Twin Oaks in 2015 after exploring communities around the country.

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

Meet the organizers!! Born and raised in Canada, Valerie has lived over half her life at Twin Oaks. The lifework that nourishes her most is being a Yoga Instructor (current favourite pose: Half-Bow/Ardha Dhanurasana). Being a virgo, she can’t help organizing things, and in addition to helping create the Women’s Gathering, she manages Twin Oaks’ firewood-splitting crew and hammock pillow-making workshop. One of her Ease Mantras: “How can I be with the experience that is happening right now with kindness and acceptance towards myself?” . . . #womenincharge #womensgathering #womensgathering18 #towomgath #intentionalcommunity #communards #yogainstructor #ardhadhanurasana #virgosbelike

Our #WCW today is Emma Goldman, an early 20th century anarchist and feminist. While she is mainly known for her anarchist writing and activism, this work was intimately intertwined with ethnic & gender politics. She was a Russian Jew, a sex worker, and a survivor of sexual assault. Additionally, she was imprisoned for distributing literature about birth control. We 💕 Emma Goldman! -Julia . . . #feministanarchy #intersectionalfeminism #intentionalcommunity #womensgathering #womensgathering18 #TOwomgath
