The Victory of Womanism | By The Pin

The Victory of Womanism | By The Pin.

A tumblr reblog from Freedominwickedness with some added thoughts from me.

Womanism is a civil rights movement created by women of color around the early 1980s in response to the marginalization of women of color by both the second-wave feminist movement and the racial civil rights movement. Womanism is massively erased by second-wave feminists who claim that women of color have always been fully included in mainstream feminism, and all too often also appropriated by third-wave feminists who fail to give due credit for womanist concepts incorporated into third wave ideology.
