Say Her Name: In Expression of Vulnerability and Power, Black Women Stage Direct Action With Chests Bared

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

I fight for mothers.

I fight for my girls to love their bodies.

To end infant mortality.

With love for female masculinity.

These were some of the messages painted on the bare chests of black women as they blocked an intersection in San Francisco's financial district during Thursday morning's rush hour in a creative direct action demanding an end to state-sanctioned violence against black women and girls—and affirming their stories, bodies, and lives.

WOW! Well done black women! We've seen a lot of disruption of late, which is a good thing, but it is a better thing that these women have found such a powerful, effective, and non-violent tool of disruption. You go girls!
