By Toni Airaksinson, College Fix
A feminist writer is set to host a martial-arts themed workshop to teach people to combat “hyper-masculinized approaches to journalism.”
“Heavy Breathing: Martial Arts for Feminist Journos” will be held this Sunday in San Francisco, Calif., and will be led by Sarah Burke, whose writing focuses on “art, identity, social justice, internet culture, feminism, and the intersections therein.”
Burke, who helped develop her feminist wits by co-founding Anti-Lab, an open resource center for “resistance projects that were anti-fascism, anti-racism, [and] anti-patriarchy,” designed the journalism workshop to empower women, according to the event description.
“In this experimental workshop attendees will collectively undermine the historic valorization of hyper-masculinized approaches to journalism,” it states.
