Not sure what the term “white feminism” means? Does it make you uncomfortable? Looking for ways to further explore the concept of intersectionality?

This great list of articles (compiled by the site www.womensmarchonwashington.com) is worth checking out in the wake of the Women’s Marches and as activism around the world continues to carry a “feminist” undercurrent.

As the site states, “It can be a long road from realizing white feminism exists to occupying a truly intersectional feminism that does not insist women of color ignore whole realities of oppression. The articles below help clarify the issues of white feminism and can help women currently practicing white feminism realize what they are doing wrong that must stop now. “
