“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.”

 

Except it’s not really that simple. And what type of woman is this quote really talking about? It’s great that we live in a society where we are finally able to talk about gender issues openly and freely, but take a look at who is being given the platform to have those discussions, and you’ll see that white women are still the primary spokespeople for feminist theories (many of which women of colour actually created).

 

There are many problems with white feminism, some of which I am probably not even aware of myself, but here are a few things that I have seen as common themes (and flaws) in white mainstream feminism.
