A space for feminists of all gender, race, class, ability and sexual orientation to unite and resist all forms of oppression, here at Resistance Feminism we acknowledge that not all people struggle the same. We strive to move away from the colour-blind, humanist lens that ignores institutional racism and socio-economic statuses in order to create a model of feminism that is inclusive and intersectional.
We believe that a feminism which is not intersectional and inclusive- is useless
We steer away from a universalist, “one-size-fits-all” model of feminism that is largely fuelled by liberal, white feminism
We do not engage in monopolisation of liberty and freedom
We provide counsel for women of color suffering predominantly from hyper-sexualisation; fetishization; patholigization and exotification
We urge attention to be drawn to the feminization of poverty
We promote an adequate address of socio-economic status, globalization, capitalism when discussing feminist inclusivity
We reject insensitive and deplorable cultural appropriations of indigenous and traditional cultures of others
We work to deconstruct “purity” and “virginity” myths that ultimately serve to perpetuate a rape culture
Is there anything else we should do?
