“It is not enough for alternative narratives of Black, Brown, and Native women simply to exist; they must actually influence the content and the course of the movement for gender parity.

Although we’ve moved to a bi-weekly schedule, I had to pop in and share this BONUS episode with you featuring the author of the newly released book calledAgainst White Feminism: Notes on Disruption. In this episode, we have a great conversation on the many ways that feminism upholds white supremacy and why many Black and Brown women identify as Womanists instead. She shares her own stories and shares insight on how women of color can navigate toxic systems of oppression and maintain their sense of self and sanity.
