I first learned feminism not from white women, but from the women in my family; poor, immigrant, East African Muslim women.

All that feminist scholarship based on the lives of middle class white women ain’t worth shit to me. Those women (my mother, my aunties, grandmother) & women just like them, with experiences most feminists don’t even think about, taught me how to survive.
