Celebrating International Women's Day
"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own."
“There are many, many different kinds of intersectional exclusions ― not just black women, but other women of color. Not just people of color, but people with disabilities. Immigrants. LGBTQ people. Indigenous people. The way we imagine discrimination or disempowerment often is more complicated for people who are subjected to multiple forms of exclusion. The good news is that intersectionality provides us a way to see it.” –Kimberlé Crenshaw
On this International Women’s Day, DC Action lifts up the importance of intersectionality. We recognize the struggles that women face are multiplied when faced by Black, brown, indigenous, LGBTQIA+ women and women with disabilities. All of us at DC Action are committed to advocating for and with all women and girls to promote equity for all.
