—Stanley I. Thangaraj
The work of women of color and trans people of color often goes unrecognized in our larger world. This silence informs us about the politics of living and which bodies and lives are made to count. Their names must be said, or the very system of inequality will continue to operate and grow.
Despite all our ‘progress’ in women’s rights and gender equality, these same rights are still up for debate. Part of the problem is thinking that promoting some women is enough. If we fail to consider the rights of racial minorities and LGBTQ citizens and ignore class inequalities, then we fail at gender equality.
