This week, the brilliant feminist scholar Jessica N. Pabón-Colón calls in to our one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art Feminist Answering Machine with an urgent question: Where is all the feminist concern and feminist action in response to the tremendous humanitarian crisis happening in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria? As she explains so clearly here, “Any way you try to rationalize it or talk about it, Puerto Rico is a feminist issue.”

If you hear her urgent call and want to do something but don’t know what, Jessica has helpfully created a list of ways you can take action. Also, be sure to check out her exciting upcoming book on female artists in the male-dominated graffiti subculture, Graffiti Grrlz: Performing Feminism in the Hip Hop Diaspora.
