About The Feminist Project
This blog is about exploring human rights issues through the lenses of oppression and privilege. Yes it will get uncomfortable at times as we learn and grow, but this is a place where there are no bad questions and ignorance is an opportunity, not an embarrassment. On this blog we encourage and support the intersectional feminist journey of everyone because we understand both knowledge and personal growth are a process that is never completed and ever-evolving.

Question of the Week
Should the internet be selectively censored?
Studies have proven that exposure to certain forms of online content leads to an increased likelihood to dehumanize a specific group of people or even commit violent acts against them. Two significant examples to point to are violent porn and hate crimes. What are your thoughts on online censorship for some types of content? Should censorship exist? If so, who controls it, and to what extent? Can we trust them to remain ethical with this control? If not, how do we justify the harm that comes to people as a result of a lack of censorship? Who would be most negatively impacted and why?
