Feminist Mantra Monday 31: Ask
This week's feminist mantra comes from the book I spent my weekend reading: Amanda Palmer's The Art of Asking.
In the book, Amanda talks about how she build a community and loving, caring fans-friends who have supported her music and performance career. It's a testament to vulnerability, trust, and care, and a treatise on what it means to be an artist.
If you haven't read it yet, I highly suggest that you do, and if reading isn't your style, then you can definitely watch (or re-watch) her TED talk.
Everything she says exudes the vulnerability-first, soft-power, process-trusting feminist energy that I want to cultivate in the world. I hope you'll join.
PS -- My ask for the week is that you'll sign up for my newsletter. It's a monthly letter full of feminist musings and gifs by amazing female and femme artists. Just enter your email in the box to the right or at Tinyletter.com/amelioratic
