All the stories you hear about the Pacific and the frontlines is like disaster or catastrophe is just one-dimensional. It's like this thing happened and then everybody died or everyone was destituded or displaced from their land. And what really has stayed with me is the normality of that kind of disaster, dispossession and displacement. It's really hard to talk with people about this because what people want to hear is a sad tragic story. No one knows what to do with a story about flooding that kids were playing in.

"I have talked about the racism of feminism, and at the time that seem radical, not because it was radical in the United States, because it was what African American women had said about feminism, that white feminism was imposing its own experience and was pretending there was no race at all. But apparently that critique was OK for African Americans to make in the US. What was radical and shocking was that an African woman, oppressed, weak, whatever... charity case, was accusing white American women of being racists! How dare you? I was shocked by the reaction."
