3 Intersectional Feminists That Are Awesome AF

Intersectional Feminism is arguably one of the most important feminist movements. Paying attention to the fact that women of different races and socioeconomic statuses have different needs allows us to have better gain for women, regardless of their identities. It’s considered one of the modern feminist movements, and a large group of women have emerged that promote and practice intersectional feminism. Buzzfeed writer Elizabeth Enochs wrote a piece presenting 8 Intersectional Feminists that are super awesome -- but out of those 8, 3 are my favorite. Check them out below!

1. Kimberle Crenshaw

This is literally a no-brainer. She was one of the first women to promote intersectional feminism in the 1980s and loves discussing the importance of the movement. She’s written books, been interviewed, and given speeches on her experiences and thoughts about the movement.

2. Emma Watson

Watson has dealt with some backlash from people who think that she doesn’t understand what it means to be a feminist because of her socioeconomic status and race. However, what makes Watson a perfect intersectional feminist is that she acknowledges her privilege and wants to use it to help those who don’t have it. Now that’s some pretty powerful stuff.

3. Franchesca Ramsey

I watched one of her videos last year and she is literally one of the funniest, most sarcastic, and most intelligent women to ever live. She incorporates history into her videos in order to make them more foolproof and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Check out her Facebook page to watch one!
