New Year, Same White Feminism: Why Glamour’s “Women” Edition Falls Short

Glamour has been getting a lot of credit for its February 2017 issue. Some of the praise is well-deserved: the issue is produced entirely by women during a time when men still dominate news media, even when it’s catered to women. But the magazine’s cover story featuring Lena Dunham is a tired tribute to white liberal feminism, something that should have been left behind in 2016.

Hey White People: You Need To Start Doing The Ugly Work That Isn’t Safe For Us To

The harrowing looming onset of the apocalypse after the events of November 8th is no doubt heavy on all our minds. And we can’t move forward, or fix anything, without asking: How did we get here? And what do we do now?

Feminist Fuck Yeah: Women Throw Beach Party to Protest French Islamophobia

This morning, protesters gathered outside the French embassy in London, poured bags of sand, and staged a beach party complete with deck chairs, inflatables, and women in a wide array of clothing, from bikinis to burkinis, to protest France’s racist ban on “religious swimwear” in its coastal towns.

A Note to White Feminists Following Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s Deaths

In the wake of the recent killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police and the following waves of Black Lives Matter protests, all white people have had to take renewed accountability for the perpetuation of racism. No less white feminists and survivors of sexual assault (like me), whose goals of ending sexual and intimate partner violence for all survivors can only be fulfilled by a simultaneous commitment to racial justice.

Bump Your ‘Becky’ Beef

Part of me knew Beyonce’s “Becky with the good hair” line would cause a wave of uninformed, poorly thought out responses, but for some reason I still hoped for the best. British fashion, beauty and style magazine, Glamour UK, may have had the worst public blunder (to put it mildly) so far, but their antagonistic white girl antics are nothing new. For Black women, “Becky” and “good hair” are euphemisms that have been around for a long, long time.
