As I drove home this evening I saw a t-shirt with the following caption “Feminism: The radical notion that women are people”. You just have to thank mitumba (a.k.a second hand clothing) sometimes.
Over the weekend I took up the two day WECREATE Challenge Business Model Challenge where I met and learned from a number of diverse people and it was great networking as well. The take out of it all is that I successfully managed to consolidate many loose thoughts that I had been swirling in my mind over the last few months. It was quite refreshing to have my idea questioned and validated at the same time.
However out of all the questions I was asked one stood out. A lady looked through my Business Model and asked me “Are you a feminist?” I was taken aback, I queried how from looking at my structured thoughts on Hairpolitan’s present and future plans she saw a feminist.
What ensued next in the form of a discussion had a lot of words thrown into it from “lesbianism” “equity vs equality” to name a few but nothing conclusive came out of it, at least in terms of Hairpolitan’s apparent relation to feminism.
Bringing me to the #HairpolitanAsks question: “Do you think your choice of keeping Natural hair and living the Natural/Organic lifestyle helps the feminist cause?”
