#IntersectionalFeminism: you cannot advocate for feminism without the decolonization lens!



♀️ Intersectional Feminism: you cannot advocate for feminism without considering the decolonization lens!


🌍Decolonization is not a buzzword; it's a fundamental movement that seeks to rectify historical injustices, dismantle oppressive systems, and center the voices of marginalized communities in the conversation. In the context of feminism, decolonization is about recognizing and addressing the lasting impacts of colonization on gender and race dynamics.


🧍🏻‍♀️🧍🏽‍♀️🧍🏾‍♀️🧍🏿‍♀️When we talk about feminism without acknowledging decolonization, we risk perpetuating a narrow, exclusionary narrative. Ignoring this reality can leave behind women who have been historically marginalized and oppressed!


So, what does an #IntersectionalFeminist perspective on decolonization entails?


🚺✊🏼🙋‍♀️

#DecolonialFeminism: Recognizing that the struggle for gender equality is inseparable from the broader fight against colonial legacies and systemic racism, decolonization within feminism involves centering the experiences and voices of Global South women, indigenous women, women of color, and those from colonized communities. This approach acknowledges the intersection of gender and colonial oppression and calls for dismantling these intertwined systems of power.

Decolonization is about dismantling colonial constructs of beauty, identity, and worth that perpetuate harmful stereotypes and biases. It's about valuing indigenous knowledge and traditions and recognizing the agency of women within their own communities.


🗣️ At Manushya Foundation, we believe that feminism MUST be decolonial, supporting women from all backgrounds. We call upon governments and civil society to prioritize the rights of all women, including those from historically marginalized and oppressed communities.


#WeAreManushyan ♾️ Equal Human Beings


Join us in amplifying the voices of women who have been historically sidelined, advocating for policies that address the ongoing impacts of colonization, and promoting true intersectional feminism: one that recognizes the interconnected struggles for gender equality and decolonization!
