Week 9 Day 1 Discussion Question 6

Moya Bailey writes that “if you want to see misogynoir in action you need only turn on the news, see a movie, watch television, or scroll your timeline. You will find examples of Black women being denied their humanity in ways that have a direct impact on their lives. But you will also, as I highlight in this text, find evidence of their resistance” (32). According to Bailey, how do “Black women as well as Black nonbinary, agender, and gender-variant folks” use social media to resist misogyoir and “carve out their own spaces” of harm reduction and personal and collective affirmation?
