Welcome

Disorient is a new resource for intersectional feminist thought, education, and activism.

Disorient is a living and growing resource for intersectional feminist thought, education, and activism created by Dr Helena Liu.

In the blog, you’ll find a wealth of comprehensive explainers, readings, activities, tools, and critiques. To sustain our activism, the practices shared here will offer vital opportunities for self-care.

My vision is to create a rich and nurturing support system for those seeking to dismantle the interlocking systems of oppression in the world.

The Creator

I’m an intersectional feminist scholar who has been researching and writing about social justice in organizations and society for 13 years.

I’m passionate about supporting other scholar-activists to dismantle the imperialist white supremacist capitalist cis-heteropatriarchy.

May Disorient serve as our place to be seen, to be heard, and to heal. It’s time to build our community and raise our collective power.
