Charla de Pleasure's curator insight, October 16, 2014 9:07 PM

This article is great because it reminds us that feminism that doesn't consider intersectionality isn't feminism. Feminism that only looks out for white cis women isn't feminism. Adapting to consider the needs of trans women isn't even that hard, because many of the issues they face are the same ones that cis women face. One way to end white/exclusionist feminism is to realize that by excluding trans, WoC, queer, and disabled women doesn't help anyone, and that feminists must rally together and be mindful of intersectionality and privilege.
