Exclusionary Feminism: Stories of Undergraduate Women of Color
Linder, Chris
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v4 n1 p1-25 Feb 2011
Seven activist Women of Color shared experiences of racism in feminist activism and provided strategies for building a more inclusive movement through this narrative study. A history of exclusion in the feminist movement and examples of marginalization provide a context for this study. Critical race feminism and intersectionality theory inform the theoretical framework. Findings include students' understanding of activism, experiences with marginalization in feminist activism, and strategies for building more inclusive feminist activist movements. Educators and scholars will benefit from the voices of Women of Color activists and gain strategies for building more inclusive campus environments, both inside and outside of activism. (Contains 1 figure and 2 footnotes.)
