Introducing myself and my journal: A view from outside the box
I am a 34 year old, single mother of a beautiful, soon to be 7 year old daughter. I am currently a CALSTATE student, majoring in gender/womens studies and minoring in creative writing. My spirituality is feminist in nature, as I identify as a Dianic Feminist Witch, a women oriented spiritual tradition revived by Zsuzsanna E. Budapest. My mother is an immigrant from the Philippines, and my father is American/German. As a radical, critical race, eco-feminist, I believe that women, children, the poor, ethnic minorities, indigenous populations, and the natural environment are viewed and treated as exploitable resources. I also believe that empowering mothers on a global level will save the world.
