Misogyny kʷil Misogyny-Miskwaa: Misogyny within the Indigenous Community
kʷil and Miskwaa are the words for red in Sqilxw and Anishinaabemowin, respectively. Percy Lezard coined the term Misogyny kʷil, which is derived from the work of Moya Bailey and misogynoir that speaks to the experiences of Black women and anti-Black misogyny. Misogyny kʷil - Misogyny-Miskwaa furthers this by complicating the intersectionality of non-binary, trans and two-spirit identities and the experiences of misogyny within the Indigenous community. Check out this conversation with Dr. Percy Lezard, Dr. Joanne DiNova and Dr. Lynn Lavallee.
