Resist: Words for the Feminist Activist: Santilla Chingaipe, Tarneen Onus-Williams and Asher Wolf

Podcast from FWF18 Melbourne: Resist: Words for the Feminist Activist.

Activism isn’t always a choice, for many people in this world their very existence is a form of activism, for others activism is a duty they can’t turn away from. In a rich discussion about what it means to work in the activist space, Santilla Chingaipe, Tarneen Onus-Wililams and Asher Wolf, dissect the words that come from their activism; how they use those words to drive awareness and change; and how they look after themselves while doing the important work.
