Gloria Steinem on Black Women and Feminism
on 25 March 2015
Feminist, journalist and activist Gloria Steinem told Black Enterprise that she thinks black women invented the feminist movement. The Medal of Freedom award winner further discusses the role black women played in her 50-year career, explaining that they were actually twice as likely to support feminist issues compared with white women. When asked what she has to say to African American women who feel the movement isn't about them, she thoughtfully responds, "I don't say anything, I listen. Because the point is that we help each other." Sage words from an icon.
