reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship
Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

@PrisonCulture on Twitter started the #myfeminismlookslike hashtag this morning and many women are sharing images of what makes them think of feminism. She tweeted: “In honor of Queen Bey’s visual album, I was thinking of what #myfeminismlookslike. So I am going to share my visual album. Join in…”
I write…a lot. I have over 700 essays here alone. But I love images too. Photographer here. And making this collage has revitalized my spirit in such a way I cannot even describe. And yes, Beyoncé is included in my perception of womanism, empowerment, inner and outer beauty, of contradictions, of humanity. And her new album BEYONCÉ truly speaks to me in a way similar to how The Electric Lady by Janelle Monáe does. Music is a part of womanism for me. It teaches and it heals. And both Janelle and Bey are here. As are our foremothers. And ancestors. And contemporaries. And academics. And this isn’t an exhaustive collage. Just a taste of BLACK WOMAN EXCELLENCE. I couldn’t fit every photo even if I wanted to but they reside in my heart no less; all those not shown here reside in my heart.
I just needed a few photos to keep my fist raised and to flick my hair to. That’s all.

The fucked up part about this chart is that it completely leaves out the context of what percentage each of these groups makes up the country.
White non-Hispanics make up 63.7% of this country.
African-Americans make up 12.2%.
Hispanics/Latinos make up 16.4%.
16.9% of Whites are on food stamps.
27% of African-Americans are on food stamps.
9.4% of Hispanics are on food stamps.
A New York City gallery has turned its cameras toward LGBTQ youth in the hopes it will help them finally find loving homes.
Heart Gallery NYC, a traveling exhibition of professional pictures taken by award-winning photographers of children in foster care looking for “forever families,” has set up in shop in Times Square, spotlighting LGBTQ young adults. The exhibition, which is the first of its kind, coincides with National Pride Month and will culminate at New York’s Pridefest on June 29.
Britain’s black power movement is being written out of recent cultural history because it does not fit into the “utopian” narrative of the UK being a nation of civilised fair play, a new book argues."If that is your narrative of British history then there can be no need for a black rights movement," said Bunce. "Any black person who says they are being discriminated against is clearly just making it up, because the British are just so fair.”The book says Britain’s black power movement was galvanised into existence by what was happening in the US and by speeches made at the Roundhouse in north London in 1967 by Stokely Carmichael. “From that point onwards you get this explosion of black power happening in Britain,” said Bunce.
