Deepali Chhabra (she/her), Fundraising and Events Officer
What does intersectional feminism mean to you?
Like many many people, I am very complex person and intersectionality neatly encompasses all these layers. Not only does it respect the voice and experience of individuals but is a great way to understand a community. In my opinion, intersectional feminism is the most reliable, compassionate framework to use discussing everything to do with social justice.
What is your favourite thing about Clitbait?
It really feels like a sisterhood! It is space of understanding, expression and super chic place to be as creative as I like.
What inspires you?
Too many things to pick from, but recently people that aren’t afraid to fail and follow through with their passion projects. During the pandemic, a lot of my peers really gave their all to their ‘side-hustles’ and a lot of them were in the philanthropic sector. They have shown a lot resilience and faith in themselves which are two things that I admire.
What things do you do outside Clitbait that you are proud of?
Nothing to be crazy proud of …yet. But I am my most committed self when it comes to volunteering with RCK (Refugee Community Kitchen).
A guilty feminist confession?
I am feminist but I am still don’t stand up for women enough, especially if its gossip hours.
A personal feminist triumph?
I’m learning to trust my own capabilities and set boundaries with other people. Also, as someone who loves women, I have learnt to confide in them and appreciate them a lot more!
