Yes to this, but at the same time, we shouldn't need the idea of reciprocity in order to help others. Are you okay with being the kind of person who sits and does nothing while other people are suffering? Are you okay with benefitting from their suffering? Is that the kind of person you want to be? No? Then maybe you should fight for the oppressed. Use your voice and your privilege to help others.

Today, her legacy inspires a new generation of civil rights advocates.

Many people are too ignorant to look at the truth about feminism and just give it a bad meaning.

Readings for Diversity and Social Justice is a phenomenal book that explains the multiple dimensions of oppressions, and the companion text, Teachings for Diversity and Social Justice, explains the theoretical framework of anti-oppressive social justice education.

Equality doesn't mean identical. It means "equal to." We might take different paths to get there, but it's the destination that matters.
