Tumblr could use a lot more feminism. Life could use a lot more feminism, as far as we're concerned. We are living in some scary times, especially if you are a women or person of color. We want you to fight back. So we're bringing you some history and quotes from kick ass women. And our hope is that you will be as inspired as we are. We welcome submissions and ideas.
Angeline Loh: Why she kicks ass
- She is a Malaysian human rights activist, lawyer and researcher who works with the Malaysian human rights organisation Aliran, which has published the independent media magazine Aliran Monthly for over 30 years, surviving numerous government attempts at censorship.
- Loh’s writings played a critical role in exposing the horrible plight of the nearly 100,000 refugees trapped in Malaysia—and opposing the Australian government’s plan to deport 800 asylum seekers back there under the Gillard government’s “Malaysia solution”.
- She joined close to a dozen international guest speakers at the World at a Crossroads, Climate Change Social Change Conference, which was held at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
