On January 21, 2017, nearly one year ago, women around the world gathered together to say no to sexism, hate and violence in the largest demonstration in human history. I was an eager participant in the event but I was not always so enthusiastic. It was a long journey before I decided to attend the Women’s March. I wondered what the march meant for people who existed outside of the parameters of white feminism - feminism that is only concerned with white, cisgender, heterosexual, college educated women.
The context of my concern is rooted in historical fact.
