This is a more general Tumblr that deals with power and privilege in many contexts, not just sex and gender. Microaggressions are those little things, those common indignities that most people don’t notice. But if you’re in a targeted group, days, weeks and years full of little microaggressions add up to a really big deal. This Tumblr seeks to expose those. Since everyone has a privilege over somebody, there is always a lot to learn.
Who Needs Feminism answers the question it poses right off the bat. It’s a simple idea. It’s just page after page of hand-written signs expressing individual reasons why we still need feminism. Most are reactions to actual personal experiences and serve as evidence that, even in the 21st century, we have a long way to go.
This Tumblr deserves a trigger warning for discussion of sexual assault. Project Unbreakable was created by a photographer called Grace Brown. She works with survivors of sexual assault by taking pictures of them holding a sign with a quote from their attacker. She has photographed more than 400 people and received over a thousand of submissions. The photos are heartbreaking and powerful depictions of women and men who refuse to be silenced or defeated by their assault.
