Brilliantly stated, thank you for reading. It takes a while for women of color to understand how true feminism works. When we finally do unpack, it’s painful and heartbreaking. Unfortunately, many women never find out feminism is about power, greed, and oppression of many to enrich a few. Feminism is a good concept, but the privilege and White Supremacy in some White women get in the way of all women benefiting from the movement. Sharing power or losing power are things feminism can’t seem to come to grips with, which is why it will never be successful. As long as the face of feminism looks like Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood, #MeToo, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Gloria Steinem, Alyssa Milano, Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, and the like, it will never be more than White Supremacy in fancy pumps.
The movement is about social and political and economic equality…for White women. If it were otherwise, the face and body of the movement would look a lot different in the 50 years since the first waves of feminism sprang up in the late 60's. Instead, feminism diluted the Civil Rights Acts, which were created to protect the rights of Black and Native Americans. Feminism is a joke.
