Trigger warning: gendered violence/attempted murder, suicide, addiction, abuse culture. A few weeks ago I wrote an article for Global Comment on the ongoing discussion in parts of the feminist blogosphere about Hugo Schwyzer, and more broadly on the place of people with a history of abuse in feminism and other activist […]
