q11

We recognize and seek to amplify the work of the many intersectional feminist scholars and activists who have preceded us and who are our peers, especially those who are marginalized. Here you will find a curated collection of work that we find particularly inspiring, but that might not be part of any specific qlab initiative.

Shamed

Shame is something that is felt so deeply and is so troublesome and is so disruptive to a person’s life that we wanted to show this in a way that in itself is disruptive. Hence our choice of an equally disruptive material: tampons.
