I’m not sure women of color ever believed the lies this country spews about women’s progress. Our pain is always over looked. We can’t afford to be fragile, nor does the world care about our fragility. While I’m happy to see women finally coming together in defense of childhood trauma experienced from sexual assaults and rapes as well as adult sexual assaults, I wonder if the compassion, anger, triggers and “feelings” will be extended to women of color who have experienced rape at the hands of police, sexually harrassed by our bosses, an International Monetary Fund Chiefs, and even a sitting Supreme Court Justice.
