|NOT MY ART. Sad Unicorn by Applejazz|
Hello, Darlings. Long time, no Unicorn. May as well just jump straight in, eh?
So, here's something that sucks. This is part of the reason why 'intersectionality' is so difficult. We HAVE to make feminism intersectional if we want the movement to have any long-lasting positive outcome in today's sociopolitical environment. I don't know the exact number, but I heard it estimated that 94% of women of color felt disenfranchised by the Women's March on DC, that it didn't reflect their interests, or that they were unwelcome; that it was only a march by their white sisters FOR their white sisters, and no one else. Obviously, that's a huge problem, and a huge division. I also know that I am not the only white woman who feels that it's a huge problem, and who is looking for a way to bridge that divide.
Since the election, I've done a lot of Googling of what to do to try to mend the gap, for ways of trying to help the cause of WOC/POC by using my , since I can't get away from it. I may as well use it for good, if possible, right? Or at least try to learn how to stop using it to inadvertently harm.
