Wiki Writing Process

Hi All–


I wanted to write here any give you all and update on my writing experience on Wiki. Okay,it has taken me a while to figure out what topic I wanted to focus on. At first, I wanted to do pregnancy discrimination in the work place, but as I begun to write for it, I felt like I could not connect to it myself. I felt that if I was going to contribute to something on Wiki, I wanted to be able to not only use the academic authors that we have read thus far in the semester, but I also wanted to be able to bring some of my own thoughts and experience to the piece.

Two weeks ago, we were assigned the piece called”Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence against Women of Color” by Kimberle Crenshaw and I found it to be really compelling. I began to think about how I can incorporate it into my article for Wiki. Then, I googled, ‘Violence against Women of Color’ and to my surprise, there is not a Wiki article on that topic. I then decdied that this was the topic that I wanted  to write about.

I know mt topic  is very broad, and so I have to pick a smaller topic within bigger topic in order be specific in my writing. So far, I have looked into Audrey Lorde and Kimberle Crenshaw for my writing. However, I am going to continue to do more research and analyze the authors that we are assigned to read in order to continue with my writing process.

Thats all for now!
