“I find I am constantly being encouraged to pluck out some one aspect of myself and present this as the meaningful whole, eclipsing or denying the other parts of self.” Audre Lorde wrote these words in her seminal work Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches, which is a collection of intersectional feminist writings, which has shaped my politics profoundly. In it, she discusses the ways in which empowerment looks different for women of color than it does for white women, whose domination of mainstream feminism has often rendered invisible the experiences and identities of women of color. This is true, too, of the way in which activism against sexism on campus can unfold. In this week’s lead story, Darializa Avila-Chevalier examines the ways in which women of color on our campus have been excluded from our conversations on sexual assault. From the lack of support systems specifically catered towards them, to whose stories are told and prioritized, to who we think of when we think of “victim” and “aggressor”, we have a lot of work to do in our understanding of the ways in which race and ethnicity intersect with sexual violence. This lead story is important for us all.
