my name is Jenni, I am 20 years old and living in Berlin

on the 22nd of june I had to flee my apartment because my roommate’s abusive boyfriend attacked both of us. I reported him but he and my roommate denied everything and she still lets her boyfriend live with her.

I am currently living with friends and already have a new flat I can move into on the 1st of august but I am completely out of money. I don’t get money until the 26th of september, until then I have close to nothing.

not only do I have to pay rent and buy food, I also have a cat, Leo.

I just hope some of you might donate a little sum or just reblog this to signal boost. my paypal is jennidoku@web.de

thank you so much

Don’t dare tell me that in modern days we don’t need feminism.

These stories and facts don’t lie.

The rescue paradigm, or as I like to call it, the I-am-the-Messiah-paradigm, is in my opinion the greatest stumbling block to comprehensive and meaningful solidarity. It denies women slated to be rescued their agency and makes it seem as though they were sitting around this entire time, unaware of their patriarchal oppression, waiting for someone far more intellectually gifted and aware to come fix things. Besides being offensive, this is also profoundly inaccurate. Women the world over organize around issues that affect their lives and are best placed to come up with solutions. Furthermore they have the intellectual capacity to do so. When we stand in solidarity we serve to highlight the efforts of local activists, we communicate that which they’d like to have disseminated and above all we provide encouragement and support. That’s right, you’re a helper — not the hero. Solidarity is not usurping a cause. It is not speaking on behalf of others. It is using our voices, words, and privileges to advance causes, address issues, and challenge status quos in the way that the affected women have framed the issue. We should not think that we understand other people’s woes better than they can. If we want to help we must actively interact with and have open dialogue with other feminists, enquiring whether our help is necessary or even desirable. Sometimes foreign intervention is the kiss of death.
