Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."
Episode Seventeen: Neo Nazis, Women's Marches, and Serena Williams: Lutze Segu talks Intersectional Feminism
This is an alarm clock of an episode because it will wake you up—especially if you've ever claimed to be an "Intersectional Feminist." Lutze Segu is a multi-issue social justice activist and practitioner of Black queer Feminism, who discussed the difference between presenting yourself as a feminist, and actually participating in social activism. We also chatted about how being an ally is not an identity but a process, and why looking at social issues such as poverty and climate change through a feminist lens is the only way to make the world a better place. Also on the conversational platter: women's marches, the "do it like a dude" mentality, Serena Williams, and what goes through your mind when a bunch of Neo Nazis show up at your place of work. This episode is rich, appropriately dense, and subtly sweet—you know, like a good carrot cake.
And here are a couple articles to check out, both penned by Lutze:
