Gloria Steinem: Black Women Created The Feminist Movement

I really enjoyed Gloria Steinem’s comments, especially as it relates to the importance of not only racial diversity in policing, but gender diversity. The important dynamic that a female officer can bring to a scene/situation should not be overlooked. Definitely a thought provoking read, share your thoughts!

  1. I LOVED this. Gloria Steinem is a real hero of mine, especially after watching this interview. While my first exposure to feminism was from a white woman, it was through the works of Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Julia Alvarez, Sandra Cisneros and countless others that REALLY cemented my feminist identity in high school. So, yes, I agree that I disproportionately learned about feminist from women of color.

    “I don’t say anything, I listen” — WORDS TO LIVE BY! I definitely still need this reminder now and again. Same with the comment about women learning to treat themselves like they treat others.

    And I have no idea why we’re not screening police officers for domestic violence! Seems like it should be automatic to me.

    1. Cheyanne, I am so glad this resonated with you! There are so many life lessons that we need to remind each other of to keep each other strong. Our struggles are similar, and united we can accomplish so much more. Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
