shereennicole When feminism is drowned in White supremacy.

Little known fact, the greatest beneficiaries of Affirmative Action are...you guessed it...White women. Although women in general still make 70-80 cents for every dollar a man makes, those numbers worsen with women of color. Furthermore, promotion potential for whites is still generally higher than their Black counterparts with the same credentials.

Black women have faced exclusion from the feminist movement since it's inception. Icons such as Sojourner Truth and the founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority came head to head with racial discrimination from White feminists. They were either denied support altogether, or treated as second class citizens (such as being forced to march in the back of the protest parade). Whereas, black women have also been forced to stand against the demon of chauvinism from both Black and White men. To this day, Black women continue to be exploited for their bodies. When Black women rise to power as a result of their own merits, they are called everything from angry to misinformed. Some are even accused of not being women at all.
At best, they are reduced to being no more than the wife of a legend, or a woman sitting on a bus...Never minding the many accomplishments of said spouses, much less the accomplishments of unsung heroes who dedicated their lives to empowering women, the poor, and people of color alike.

Thank you for the imagery @queen.o.melanin

Women of all colour in ASEAN rejoice!

MAC Cosmetics launches ProLongwear Nourishing Waterproof Liquid Foundation and ProLongwear Pressed Powder.

It promises long wearing in humidity, oil and sweat! Excellent hold to even use as a concealer for minor flaws.

In Singapore, 16 shades in liquid foundations and 12 shades in pressed powder is avaliable. So olive to tan girls, do not complain that there is no liquid foundations for you now!
