Helen Knott is turning her daily activism into rhythmic pros in honor of the mamas on the frontlines of our interconnected struggles. Knott performed the lines “if mamas don’t fight for the children, then who will?” while reciting her poem at the 2017 Nobel Women’s Initiative conference. Drawing on the links between defending water and lands from patriarchal laws, Knott nods at women’s role in the climate justice movement while speaking truth to power across all stripes of social and political spectrums.
