White feminism is an extension of white supremacy
This is likely the chapter that has been the hardest for me. So much of my life and career have been a fight for equality for women in a professional world dominated by men of all colors and cultural backgrounds. I fully admit that I have not regularly or often enough called out the gaps in pay and treatment of black, indigenous, and women of color (BIWOC). I struggle with this because I believe that globally women are the most hated sub group of humans…even over most other groups.
This is an area that I will have to continue to work on…to push myself to be more focused on where my privilege blinds me to the ways that I am showing up on behalf of only white women and not women at large. I know this is a problem area because of my deep resistance and feelings of defensiveness.
I commit to continue working on this and to being a better ally in the realm of feminism.
