Though the primary goals of feminism may be common, a lot changes amongst women’s interests across race, ethnicity, sexuality and class. It became apparent during the 2016 Women’s March, that not all women felt welcome. How can feminism avoid promoting primarily the interests of white middle class and wealthy women? How can women come together, recognizing intersectional differences as progressive force for social change? If poor and working class women’s issues are different than middle and upper class women’s issues, how can middle class women’s movements be trusted to address them? This panel will seek to address these issues.
