So in awe of this queen @rachelcargle. Tonight I attended her event on Unpacking White Feminism....and let me just say, if you ever get a chance to listen to Rachel speak, take full advantage. Her voice is SO needed.
We went through the history of the women’s movement and uncovered how the voices of women of color have been whitewashed and broad-brushed for the entirety of the movement. Rachel challenged much of what we all learned coming into adulthood about what it means to be a feminist and what intersectionality actually is.
I’m still unpacking much of the lecture and will definitely have followup thoughts and revelations but watching Rachel reminded me of how grateful I am to be a Black woman.
No matter how much we have endured, we are so resilient, so strong and so powerful.
We must ALL use our voices to deconstruct racist systems of oppression and impact our spheres of influence.
