…Women should allow our essence and presence to shine, rather than letting ourselves be buried or shunted to the sidelines.
This is the third episode of Great Woman Theory – a podcast discussing great women and feminist events in history. In this episode, learn about Coretta Scott King, activist, musician, mother, and wife of Martin Luther King Jr. We discuss the hidden women of the civil-rights movement, through the sacrifices and personal achievements of Coretta as an original intersectional feminist, LGBT rights activist as well as a driving force behind milestones of the civil-rights movement. Coretta’s core message is one well worth remembering today – sexism, racism and homophobia are all equally repugnant forms of hatred which have to be fought unrelentingly.
I am an activist. I didn’t just emerge after Martin died—I was always there and involved.
