24 Aug Creative Womxn 2017 | Feminist and poet Kim Windvogel on using the voice as a form of activism
Cape Town born and bred Kim Windvogel is a poet, activist and educator, as well as a Creative Womxn 2017. They are also one of the directors of organisation Freedom of Education Motivates Empowerment (FEMME) and self-describes as an “intersectional feminist living in hetero-patriarchal world”. Kim’s personal blog Blazing Non-Binary shares personal stories, experiences and thoughts on issues pertaining to womxn in the hopes that their vocality will encourage others to speak out.
This year, Kim released a self-published poetry book called Resist: The Paradox of Love and Other Societal Disorders, and invited us to a reading. They also speak to us about family upbringing, community organising and experiences navigating the world.
