Stories of Girls’ Resistance
Glodie, Illinois


“I feel like resistance is also just surviving. So, you don’t even know that you’re doing it but you’re resisting every single day and so it’s hard to try to put into words that I like… This is literally what I do every day, and I’m sure you’ve talked to so many amazing women… And I’ve been able to recognize what they do daily has resistance because you’re running. Especially as black women, you’re just running and you don’t know what you’re doing and you’re putting so many things aside and you’re not even thinking about certain things and the impact and you’re just running and it’s surviving and it’s pushing forward and that’s resistance in the smallest ways.”
