This blog is a place that hopes to provide a safe space for those of us who are ‘othered’ by mainstream Australian feminism.
We are a group of women frustrated by the focus on white upper middle class women by prominent Australian feminists and mainstream media who say their focus is Australian feminism. It simply is not.
That Australian feminism which focuses on increasing female representation on company boards, for example, is one type of feminism, but it isn’t that of the majority and it isn’t ours.
We are the Australian majority. Our focus is wide-ranging. We are the diverse majority.
We are sick of constantly pointing out the racism, ableism, heteronormativism and classism that is not only apparent but rampant in Australian feminism. We are also sick of the hypocrisy when some Australian feminists want us to stop pointing out their privilege and then question the value of intersectionality within feminism and our right to speak for ourselves.
You may not agree with us, and that’s ok, but we’re going to call out Australian feminists that pretend to speak for us, “the diverse majority”, whenever & wherever we see it.
Plus a funny to end the week from the awesome Aamer Rahman on reverse racism:
