Why Every Black and Brown Girl Needs to Learn About Radical Feminist Leadership
We argue that, to honor the humanity of Black and Brown girls, we need to begin with narratives that not only #SayHerName, but also explicitly expose them to radical feminist leadership approaches. By doing so, we will ensure that young girls of color understand the philosophy that guided Black and Brown female leaders who were freedom fighters for liberation.
