Interlopers in a masculine city

Interlopers in a masculine city | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

A Note to White Feminists Following Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s Deaths

A Note to White Feminists Following Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s Deaths | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

Justice for sexual assault means racial justice. In the wake of the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, white feminists need to confront racism in their anti-sexual assault work. This means challenging the ways accusations of sexual assault have been used to justify racist violence historically and today.

Wonder Woman’s Costume Has Changed SO MUCH Since 1941 | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
