    I found the essays difficult to get through, perhaps because I was looking for moments to exclaim, this is how I ve always felt and could never put it in words yet this never happened I think the experiences of women of color are too varied due to culture, class, sexual orientation, and so on I also felt a bit of a generation gap between myself and the writers I was born 1984 I got the feeling they were all born around 1975 However, Rebecca Walker s Black White Jewish had me laugh I found the essays difficult to get through, perhaps because I was looking for moments to exclaim, this is how I ve always felt and could never put it in words yet this never happened I think the experiences of women of color are too varied due to culture, c...

    I think this collection of essays is an excellent read for someone like me a feminist looking to better understand the intersection of racism, classism, homophobia, and other factors with feminism There is a wide representation of women of color experiences in these essays.This book was a hard read at times, because it is unapologetic in its criticisms of feminism, which in general still tends to focus on issues of white middle class women rather than the broader spectrum that includes women o I think this collection of essays is an excellent read for someone like me a feminist looking to better understand the intersection of racism, classism, homophobia, and other factors with feminism There is a wide representation of women of color experiences in these essays.This book was a hard read at times, because it is unapologetic in its criticisms of feminism, which in general still tends to focus on issues of white middle class women rather than the broader spectrum that includes women of color and their experiences with racism, classism, etc., altogether I LIKED that it was unapologetic, because it was a good wake up call to me The rather narrow view of general feminism was something I understood at an academic level before reading this book, but this collecti...

    The collection of essays by Women of Color definitely helped me check the still white feminism I learn in my college course I connected with most of the essays and appreciated the honesty from the writers Through the essays, I was able to learn the different lessons of feminism that is not from the set of certain ideals or theories, rather the values that are important to you as a woman It is about empowerment of yourself, not fitting into some wave of feminism that shape around the status The collection of essays by Women of Color definitely helped me check the still white feminism I learn in my college course I connected with most of the essays and appreciated the honesty ...
