Reimagining Our Feminist Futures | Amira Pierotti | TEDxOakParkWomen



Depending on your point of view, the word “feminism” is either a freedom cry for women’s rights or an overused and outdated concept. Amira Pierotti explains how it is time to redefine feminism as a site of intersectionality that dismantles ALL sexism. Amira Pierotti (they/them) is a tireless advocate for transgender and gender-expansive rights, menstrual equity and sexual assault survivor rights. They are a Lead Organizer with Bleed Shamelessly, an organizer with the award-winning Wisconsin Trans Rights Coalition, a student facilitator of the GameChangers program at the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) of Dane County, and a past student representative on the RCC board of directors. Amira is the recipient of the 2021 RCC GameChangers Award and a nominee for the 2021 PERIOD Youth Champion Advocacy Award. After graduating high school in 2022, Amira plans to continue grassroots and youth-led advocacy work. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
