Dean Spade discusses feminist frameworks for research and resistance in terms of the dynamic between the personal and political as well as the importance of compassion and care in the work to dismantle normative systems of hierarchy. Centered in a racial and economic justice perspective, Spade uses pinkwashing as an example to raise questions about propaganda and skill building in community media reading practices.
