I haven’t posted this until now because I wanted to make sure it was all legal, but last summer, Marie Claire South Africa magazine approached me about a project on “making a feminist Barbie.” This was my contribution!!

I think Barbie is a really complex feminine icon, and I was so excited to get the chance to add to the discussion. I think a feminist Barbie would love her body and love my body too, because feminism is all about accepting yourself and others for who we all are! “A feminist Barbie” would be proud of her own thin frame and proud of another woman’s curvier one. She would be proud of a woman’s decision to own her own body by deciding to tattoo it, strengthen it, or wear religious coverings. If being a Barbie girl (or boy, or anything inbetween) meant being accepted and accepting of others, I think we’d all want to be on Barbie’s side.

(oh yeah legal stuff: this is not commerciality associated with Barbie or Mattel at all and I do not own or claim to own Barbie!! This is strictly parody/fan art.)

I am the swallower of sins.
The lust goddess without guilt.
The delicious debauchery…

Mi Triqui: Life in Three Languages

Like many migrant children from Mexico, Bernadina Hernández came to the United States without speaking a word of English. She didn’t speak Spanish either, only Triqui — the Indigenous language of her pueblo in Oaxaca. Now she’s a leader in her community and the breadwinner of her family.

This short documentary takes a look at the work Bernadina does for Indigenous families, primarily Triquis from the state of Oaxaca, in her hometown of Hollister, CA.

Bermadina is also a member of La Unión Indígena, an organization serving Indigenous-language speakers in many of central California’s agricultural communities.

This documentary was part of Raquel Maria Dillon’s master’s thesis at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Raquel now works as a video journalist for the Associated Press. Follow her on Twitter at @RaquelAPLA.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re reposting “Mi Triqui” in hopes that more people see it. Help us share Bernadina’s amazing story by passing along this video to family and friends. A special thanks to Raquel for making this video available to the public again.
