Intersectionality Matters

checkprivilege:

split-the-coast:

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

The feminist movement isn’t about white women only. In the third wave, feminism has come to acknowledge intersectionality. This means that the patriarchy doesn’t oppress women and people of color separately nor does the oppression of a being a woman add to the oppression of being a person of color. Oppression as a woman of color is unique and cannot be broken apart or separated into parts. We cannot overcome one oppression and ignore others.

Feminism is great.
