#wcw and #womensmarchwednesday is for my sister @tiernan7 and I. We will be marching on Saturday along with our mom, our aunt and many friends in LA. (Anyone who is marching alone, or who wants a group to march with, contact me!) Our older sister @unicornkiller1, will also be marching in D.C. We are a trio of feminist sisters and we march for each other!
Our pose is inspired by the great Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes. And while we are both white, we recognize the deep problems that have plagued feminism from the very beginning concerning race. We work hard to practice awareness and humility with our feminism and above all intersectionality. So for those who may not know (because Steinem often takes the spotlight in feminist history) Hughes is an amazing woman:
"Dorothy Pitman Hughes (born 1938) is a feminist, child-welfare advocate, African-American activist, public speaker, author, pioneering African-American small business owner, and mother of three daughters. She was a co-founder of Ms. Magazine in 1972. She organized the first shelter for battered women in New York City and co-founded the New York City Agency for Child Development (now the New York City Administration for Children's Services). Hughes also co-founded with Gloria Steinem and others the Women’s Action Alliance in 1971. The two women toured together speaking about gender, class and race throughout the 1970s."
Take a minute to learn about a non-white feminist because acknowledging the problems of feminism and working to fix them is paramount to our cause. Xx
