Powa Moves #2: Posts from #teamgirlpowa

in #teamgirlpowa4 years ago


This is the second edition of Powa Moves, our English-language curation post boosting some of the great writing and art posted under the #teamgirlpowa tag. In the words of Audre Lorde: "When you reach out and touch other human beings, it doesn't matter whether you call it therapy or teaching or poetry." We love the awesome feminist and women-centered work y’all produce—keep it up!
