Regularly Scheduled Reminder:⁠
"Queen" is NOT a feminist business model⁠
⁠
There's a narrative in white lady entrepreneur empowerment spaces encouraging us to be a "Queen" in our businesses and lives. ⁠
⁠
While I totally get -- and FEEL -- the need to channel queenly sovereign energy and use it to fortify yourself as we navigate a culture that invalidates women at every turn, we need to be reaaaaaalllllly cautious about using "Queen" as a business model.⁠
⁠
What being a "Queen" usually means, in the Female Lifestyle Empowerment Brand narrative, is that a Queen delegates her overload tasks to other, lower-paid women, and voila! personal 'empowerment' for the Queen.⁠
⁠
That's not "empowerment". ⁠
⁠
That's exploitation and advanced capitalism.⁠
⁠
That's one women learning how to switch positions so she can personally flourish in an unjust system rather than all of us changing the system so we all can flourish.⁠
⁠
So, feeling queenly energy, sure; using queenly business practices, no.⁠
⁠
Because nope, 'Queen' is NOT a feminist business model.⁠
