  • White Feminism Is Anti-Feminism

    When people first think of feminism the images that often come to mind is white women with unshaven legs and armpits, and the radical, bare-chested Femen protesters. Rarely, if ever, do women of color or indigenous women come to mind when thinking of a “poster-child” for feminism unless they are being “saved” by Western feminists from the supposed oppressive patriarchy in the given society. Feminism is often used for imperialistic means, from justifying the American invasion of Afghanistan to Femen invading churches and mosques demanding that women remove their “oppressive” clothing, giving feminism as a whole a racist, white face. For this reason, white feminism has become anti-feminism, oppressing women just as much as the patriarchy it’s supposed to be fighting against.
