2 AWESOME Videos Everyone Should See

12 Jun

I saw 2 feminist videos this week that I couldn’t get out of my mind I wanted to share.

We Should All Be Feminist by  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Before you rule out the video because of its 30-minute length, (I know, I usually don’t have the time or attention span either) hear me out. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie tells her journey to feminism in a comically entertaining TED Talk that touches on socialization based on gender, Her speech is captivating and supported with wit and comedy. Although she talks about her experiences in Lagos, Nigeria, many of those same issues cross the Atlantic and also occur in the U.S.

Who Run The World (Girls) by Beyonce. Interpreted in American Sign Language

If you love dancing and have even the slightest interest in American Sign Language (ASL), then you will really enjoy this video. I’m an ASL student and a huge fan of interpreting songs. This video is so fun and the interpreters are fierce. While watching I was like, “get it girls!”  The interpreting felt so natural and was done with so much confidence.

Hope you enjoy them both 🙂 Let me know what you think.

    Stop Oppression of Women in the Third World

    http://stopow.tumblr.com/

    We are a new organization that is committed to stopping the oppression of women in the third world countries.

    Women in the Third World suffer considerably from the following problems:

    -daily domestic violence

    -brutal rape and torture

    -patriarchal culture without any moderation

    -abusive men

    -honor killings

    -forced poverty and are unable to free themselves since women are considered as property, not human beings, in many third world countries

    We are committed to trying to END this oppression. One of our goals is to create a political lobby or organization that lobbies for visas for single or divorced women from third world countries, so that we can bring them to the West and help them escape the abuse, rape, poverty, and violence of the patriarchal system in most third world countries.

    If you are interesting in helping out by donating, or web designing, or campaigning for us, please drop me a line at sowtw1987 AT hotmail DOT com
