All women, no matter where we live or what we look like, deserve to live in a world where we feel safe, valued, and have the opportunity to thrive. As we bring Women’s History Month to a close, we acknowledge that “Women’s History” means something different for everyone. As a cisgender, straight, Filipina immigrant woman – video fellow, Maris Medina, takes up space and moves through the world in ways that are distinct from other women.
Women’s History Month is a chance to center the stories of women whose lived experiences continue to be excluded from today’s narratives that narrowly define what it means to be a woman.
Through the lens of a crucial question — what does a feminist world look like? — Maris shares the wishes she has for her mom, her sister, herself, and every woman in the fight to make our communities one in which we can all thrive.
