Have white women forgotten about black women who stood by and helped them with equal rights for women? Today white woman have equal and more opportunities than white men. They live longer. Some colleges have placed quotas on admission of women to 50%, if not women would consist of about 70 % of the student body. Patience! It only a matter of a few years.
Unfortunately, that will not apply to all women. In the fight for equal right for women, we forget to include ALL women.
Instead, gender is now synonymous with white women and white privilege. I do not feel included and I am not alone in that sentiment.
Anytime I hear the word gender, I immediately think of white women issues. Why is that? Because it usually it is all about white women and their discomforts. As a black woman, I am included only as a token on picture day.
My gender depends on the convenience of the dominant society.
Is society listening to the rest of the world?
