"Complaint is feminist pedagogy. Listening to those who have been through a complaint process not all of whom have been able to complete that process has taught me what might seem obvious (and the obvious is often obscured by being obvious): the reasons making a complaint is difficult are the same reasons that making a complaint is necessary. A complaint brings you up against the culture of an institution; and a complaint is often necessary because of the culture of the institution."   Sara Ahmed, "Cutting Yourself Off," 2017
