Reclaim The Bindi Week

So I just found out a movement called #reclaimthebindi week has been spreading throughout tumblr. It began March 8th and is ending March 14th. South Asian girls are posting selfies of them wearing their bindis and talking on the gross cultural appropriation of South Asian culture. As well as shadism and colorism they’ve experienced. While I’m not South Asian, I think this is a beautiful movement and I’m in full support of these girls taking back their culture. First The Blackout, now this, I can’t wait to see more celebration for minorities! If you are interested in finding out more about the movement or participating, just type in the hashtag #reclaimthebindi on tumblr, instagram, or twitter.
