Honey, I got news for all my Privileged White Feminist Sisters out there who are thus far UNBELIEVABLY unaware/occluded/in denial/in contempt of this reality:
As we forge onward into the 21st Century, without Intersectionality…Feminism is COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS.
So, now…our task, as enlightened, dedicated Feminists, is to quit talkin’ about it…and JUST DO IT.
“Intersectionality is an awkward word representing an important idea. While feminism is the belief that the rights of women are as inalienable as the rights of men, feminism, at its best, is so much more. No one assumes only one identity. We cannot consider the needs of women without also accounting for race, ethnicity, gender, citizenship, class, sexuality, ability and more. Such nuanced awareness, such intersectionality, is the marrow within the bones of feminism. Without it, feminism will fracture even further.” — Roxane Gay, NPR
