Sarah “Saartjie” Baartman (before 1790 – 29 December 1815)(also spelled Bartman, Bartmann, Baartmen) was the most famous of at least two Khoikhoi women who were exhibited as freak show attractions in 19th-century Europe under the name Hottentot Venus—”Hottentot” as the then-current name for the Khoi people, now considered anoffensive term, and “Venus” in reference to the Roman goddess of love. Since her rise to prominence Baartman’s body has been used to set a borderline between the “abnormal” African woman and “normal” Caucasian woman. The fact that she had protruding buttocks and an extendedlabia minora made society view her as this “wild or savage female”. Her “abnormalities”, as Georges Cuvier mentions in the “Gender, Race and Nation” chapter of The Gender and Science Reader, made her resemble everything but a white woman. She had a peculiar jaw structure, a short chin, and a flat nose, which resembled that of a “Negro.” She was then considered to be part of the “Negro race,” which at the time was considered the lowest race of humans. She was sometimes likened to an orangutan instead.

"We building.. not destroying."

"How is it we are to compete in a capitalist society when our playbook is written by our competition? The proposition is so very clear that it seems ridiculous to take any pains to prove."
