Dr Brittney Cooper: Eloquent Rage. In conversation with journalist Santilla Chingaipe

Dr Cooper is a first generation university graduate and is motivated by using her research and practice to bring conversations about dismantling patriarchy in everyday life, not just in class Dr Cooper sits on a couch next to Santilla Chingaipe
Dr Cooper sees young Black women & other women of colour struggling with the term feminism because of White women's racism. There are other excellent practices that challenge this (e.g. womanism), but Dr Cooper invites #WOC not to throw away the history of our liberation... 1/2
...White women did NOT invent feminism. White women's involvement in gender liberation grows from them watching Indigenous & Black women's organising. The Women's March was a direct result of other mass movements organised by #WOC - e.g. Arab Spring, #BlackLivesMatter
