Sun, 19 June 2011 embracing the paradox

This TED Talk called Reinventing Feminism is by Courtney Martin, feminist, journalist, activist and editor at Feministing.com.

It’s a fine overview of feminism in the 21st century and why women should continue to agitate for change despite the times when the issues seem overwhelming.

I found it personally inspiring. It reminds me that our moments of despair often contain the seeds of what can save us eventually.

If we care deeply about issues it’s inevitable that lack of progress or failure will cast us into a depression.

It’s okay to falter because it matters so much. That’s also the best motivation to keep striving for change.
