The Power Issue. Who gets to attain power and who is penalized for wielding it? These are age-old questions that have come into sharp focus by recent cultural and political events, including the 2016 election, an ever-growing wealth gap, and now, a pandemic that has killed hundreds of thousands of people. Power is a constant negotiation as we navigate its dynamics in every facet of our everyday lives, from our workplaces to our romantic relationships to the ways we treat essential workers. The Power Issue of Bitch speaks to this moment by interrogating the very nature of power itself, by exploring everything from housing justice to homeschooling to genetic testing to labor unions to Indian romance novels. In order to usher in equality, we must first figure out how inequality came to be, and this issue reflects the importance of asking questions that will lead us to liberation.
