What Does Asian Feminism Mean To Me?

Asian Feminism

Asian feminism is much different from all the other female social movements like mainstream White and Black feminism. We are mistakenly lumped in with White women’s movements and not considered women of color like Latina and Black women. (The latter applies mostly to light-skinned East Asian women since Southeast Asian women never seem to have a voice in that circle either.) And while most Asian women believe this intellectually, they don’t seem to understand how to apply it to their own feminism.
