When I took women’s studies, it was all this really dense reading about subjects I had such a hard time relating to. Although I can appreciate those texts now, I still wanted more than anything to be consuming fun and accessible media that I could identify with. Why did feminism have to feel like such a heady topic, when it is, in fact, for everyone? (love you @bellhooks_)
I always felt like after becoming a stripper, academia would be something forever in my past, but I’m so stoked that it’s not. I’m stoked that academic institutions are changing and gender studies is making sure it not only talks the talk of intersectionality, but that it also walks the walk.
I’ve had the privilege to speak at many universities across the country, and cannot wait for my talk tomorrow at UT Knoxville for Sex Week.
So anyway this is my #glowup / #10yearchallenge post because fuck yes / go me.
And YES I would LOVE to come and speak at your college/university/family picnic, feel free to send me an email for booking inquiries! info at jacqthestripper dot com.
