The prompt was “Voice” and so I am joining mine to fight for justice for all women. In the media, feminists and those who regularly stand for social justice are stereotyped as white women fighting for white women.
I reject the Lena Dunhams and Amy Schumers of the feminist movement. White feminism needs to go.
I am not perfect. I am not the strongest ally. I can’t be because I am white-passing and I don’t face the struggles that so many of my WOC friends face every. single. day. But I can try to empathize, I can prioritize understanding their issues. I join my voice under theirs, but with theirs.
