Intersectional Feminism

            

Intersectional Feminism- a movement recognizing that barriers to gender equality vary according to other aspects of a woman’s identity, including age, race, ethnicity, class, and religion, and striving to address a diverse spectrum of women’s issues. As it stands, white feminism fails to address these issues. 

Breonna Taylor-#sayhername- Breonna was a 26 year old EMT from Louisville who was shot by police in her own home while sleeping. The officers in question had a warrant out, believing her residence to be a drug shipment location. There were no drugs found in her apartment, and six months after her murder, she has yet to receive justice. Breonna has, unfortunately, become an emblem for the many murdered Black women that the media fails to cover.
