“Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavandar”-Alice Walker
I am TheFeministGriote and I am seeking to fill a void within the urban blogosphere. This website is about adding to the larger conversation that is going on in the world of politics and women. I am a feminist but I subscribe more to the “womanist” approach. I believe that men & women must work together in order to remedy the social ills that plague women globally. I have dubbed myself the “TheFeministGriote” because in African cultures the griot is the repository of information the one in the community that is trusted to maintain culture by remembering all the stories and lineages within the community. In this 21st century that is what I am to you. I am the voice that wants to remind you what is important & to always come back to the middle.
I want my readers & visitors to take this writing seriously. I will resist the urge to write about my personal life into the blogs. This is not twitter and therefore you do not need to worry about reading about my boring single life & my non-existant dating life. This is a website that is focused on making social commentaries. I welcome feedbacks and comments of all sorts. I am able to hear & appreciate opinions contrary to mine. I promise to always respect your intelligence and be relevant!
