You may have heard the terms: “white feminism,” “liberal feminism,” “corporate feminism,” “second-wave feminism,” or maybe “Clinton feminism.” These terms collectively refer to a branch of the women’s liberation movement that, in practice, exclusively seeks liberation for predominantly white, middle-and-upper-class women and that — when this branch of feminism fights for intersectional causes, they seem to manifest in middle-class reforms that can wind up hurting working-class women and women...
I encourage you to check out some of the moving speeches on FWTV (8/15/17 City Council Meeting). Among my favorite â€œsoundbitesâ€? of the evening:Hereâ€™s what I had to say to the Council, for record-keeping:This is my second time addressing the Council on this matter. Since we last spoke, white supremacy reared its ugly head in Charlottesville, Virginia.
On August 15, 2017, concerned constituents spoke to Fort Worth City Council before a vote on whether Fort Worth would join many other Texas citiesâ€Šâ€”â€Šincluding Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Austin, San Marcos, and tiny El Cenizoâ€Šâ€”â€Šin a lawsuit against SB4. Forth Worth citizens had been lobbying the council for weeks (hereâ€™s why) to join the lawsuit against Senate Bill 4, a notorious piece of â€œshow-me-your-papersâ€?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
