How Many of These Early Black Feminists Do You Know?

How Many of These Early Black Feminists Do You Know? | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

Though black feminists have wielded social media to make willful strides into public consciousness, black feminism is nothing new. The challenge of being doubly oppressed as a black woman has always colored feminist conversations, and minority women rarely have the luxury of fighting solely on behalf of their gender. The question of intersectionality predates hashtags and Twitter feminism and goes all the way back to impasses such as the one between black journalist Ida B. Wells and white suffragist Frances Willard. Wells implored Willard to acknowledge the evil of lynching, while Willard,blinded by her race and class privileges, believed black men to be deserving targets.

Elle magazine examines gendered anxiety in men without thinking critically about gender

Elle magazine examines gendered anxiety in men without thinking critically about gender | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

Elle magazine had a great opportunity to talk about how patriarchy and assumed gender roles hurt men. But they didn’t take it. Luckily, I have no problem doing it for them.

Vogue is usually the only magazine I read every month. But I was drunk on a Sunday afternoon (completely normal on the DC brunch scene) and I picked up the February 2014 copy ofElle magazine for my monthly dose of “shit I can’t afford.” Let me be clear, I don’t read fashion magazine for feminist theory. But if you are going to try to take a stab at gender analysis, don’t half ass it.
