#World Poetry Day-All Oppression is connected!

Standard

From human trafficking to wars to violence to consumerism, from patriarchy to capitalism ,about rape ,dowry, female foeticide ,I have blogged and blogged and blogged not that I am stopping here but to mark this World Poetry Day and quoting one of my favorite spoken word artists –Stacey Ann Chin“All Oppression is connected” ,I am posting my spoken word videos on these issues of which  some are personal narratives of abuse and fighting it, as I believe that personal stories are the most empowering and liberating!

On Human Trafficking-“Piece By Piece

On all the injustice in the world-“All the Isms”

On the Beauty mania-“Beauty and Madness”

On Female Foeticide-“The Whimsical Egg”

On being a woman-“Being a woman is not Funny at all”

“A poet’s work . . . to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world and stop it from going to sleep.”
