Blair Imani

The Grassroots Activist Demanding Attention

Blair Imani is a force. As a nonconforming bisexual Muslim activist, Imani started the feminist organization Equality for HER to advocate for women who, like her, don’t fit inside traditional identity boxes. She is also the author of Modern HERstory: Stories of Women and Nonbinary People Rewriting History, which tells the stories of 70 contemporary heroes who are changing the world. Currently serving on the board of the Tegan and Sara Foundation and picking up speaking engagements all over the country, Imani is prepared to turn the proverbial table on its head.

“A great woman once said, “If there’s no seat for me at the table, I will bring my folding chair.” But I think we should get rid of the table. Why is it a process of inviting and excluding when we can all just have a community discussion?”
