Our world needs great healing.
The dismantling of white supremacy.
The flourishing of all genders into feminist freedom.
A deep reckoning with Indigenous rights, decolonization, and the earth.
Spiritualities grounded in justice.
The unleashing of ancient economies of interconnection.
What is so transformative about reclaiming the work of feminist foremothers is they have been studying these interconnected struggles—and finding coalitions to build the personal, spiritual, and collective change—for generations.

We teach feminist history through a truly interdisciplinary lens. The innovative and extensive research informing the courses integrates Black studies, ethnic studies, Indigenous studies, Chicana studies, Jewish cultural studies, Arab American studies, Asian American studies, postcolonial theory, queer theory and LGBTQ history, and religious history.
We teach trauma-informed learning practices that honor somatic knowledge and link collective transformations to inner healing. Said another way, this is not an an approach to trauma that ignores systemic violence—because we heal trauma through healing injustice.
We teach practices to feel and process the grief of violent structures (like patriarchy and white supremacy), while supporting ways to move that grief into creative power and collective change. This approach includes spiritually-informed teaching that is rich in contemplative practices. We also honor frameworks for intergenerational healing that connect to collective change and liberation.
I live and work in NYC, a city that has brought joy and rejuvenation to my scholarly life and writing. I am usually walking around wearing vintage because I love the textures of vintage fabrics the way that I love the texts of feminist foremothers. I am a mystic and spirituality is a central practice of my work.
If you want to know my super long list of training, I suggest you read up on me here over at kimberlybgeorge.com. I am trained in 4 fields at the graduate level, and it is in thinking across and between fields that my teaching is so powerful. I read and wrote voraciously in 5 different graduate programs for 15 years until I felt I had developed my body of unique knowledge that I offer through Feminism School.
Other things about me: I am open to trading skill sets for courses. (We currently need transcribers and proofreaders.) I don't think money is the only currency in a feminist economy: it might not even be the main currency in the future of this world. Other things about me: I like twirling, contemplative reading and coffee, walking Manhattan, and tea parties. My first academic book was on football and social theory (I grew up loving the Seahawks). I used to be a gymnast. I want to be a writer of speculative fiction (a novel is in progress).
Something about Feminism School:
The logo (being designed) comes from this bird/cloud that is on this skirt my grandmother made for my mother in the 1970s and which I now wear (much to the delight of women elders in NYC who stop me on the street and appreciate my grandma's art!). I believe dwelling within women's creativity across the generations is a powerful feminist practice.
(Can you spot the bird/cloud?)
