"Writing is my passion. It is a way to experience the ecstatic. The root understanding of the word ecstasy—“to stand outside”—comes to me in those moments when I am immersed so deeply in the act of thinking and writing that everything else, even flesh, falls away."

This blog began with the idea that Sandra, Ashley and I wanted to discuss the importance of how cultural perceptions are made about Middle Eastern women, especially Chaldean women, who have not be represented properly in academia and global politics. We wanted to write this blog from our own hearts, in hopes of finding our own feminist voices along the way. We recognize that although we may have a lot in common, our differences are embraced on a wide spectrum of culture, attitudes, knowledge and experiences that we hope to share with you within this blog. Also, within this blog, we will discuss meaningful articles and news topics that we feel are relevant to how our own culture is displayed, and the reasons why we can sometimes feel so empowered as women, yet so dis-empowered as well.

Furthermore, we hope to share with you, the readers, how we find our own empowerment through our feminist voices that have been changed throughout the past four years of our undergraduate university experience in Women’s Studies.
