Week Ten Journal Prompt: Intersectionality

Posted by naomi.namnam39 on November 24, 2020 at 10:05 PM

For my journal prompt this week, I had chosen to read and explore “Why our feminism must be intersectional” by Jarune Uwujaren. Jarune goes in depth about what white feminism is and how different it is from other types of feminism. She explains how white feminism is the “one size fits all” type, and all other races and minorities have to fit into it. Types of white feminism include transphobia of trans women and saying that things that don't fit their standards isn’t “real feminism”. She then goes on to explain what intersectionality is, and how it must be included within all forms of feminism. Jarune gives the audience examples such as a disabled trans person, and then makes the audience understand that a person like that cannot choose which part of them is more oppressed, and that society needs to be more accepting when it comes to forms of oppression. Finally, the author then gives us three steps in which to take a step back and analyze the situations at hand, and how to break through the molded barrier in order to make sure that everyone gets a fair shot at life.
