"Often we found that a term branded 'white feminism' has been used to talk about the fact that a lot of feminist activity, both historically and currently, focuses on and attracts more white women to it. And isn't talking about the multiple discriminations, the intersecting inequalities, that women of colour experience with the overlap of racism and sexism. And how that finds itself, illustrates itself, in policymaking, in service design, in the boardroom or within media and journalism. And these are things that are critical to feminism and critical to creating an inclusive feminism that works for those who need it the most, those furthest away from access to opportunity, power, wealth. That is the kind of feminism that we're interested in"
In the fourth episode of the Pass the Mic takeover of On the Engender, host Talat Yaqoob is joined by Toni Haastrup and Zoe Daniel to discuss how intersectional feminism must work with, and for, women of colour, and the need for real systemic and institutional change in Scotland and beyond.
