It’s always super frustrating for me when white people write revisionist, exclusionary white feminist stuff like this and it gets so much attention and hype for the worst reasons because it is at my cost and of that of other women of color.

First off, those suffragettes were white women only advocating for the vote for themselves, WOC did not get their right to vote until much later. Don’t ever lump me, also woman but not a white one, in with those people by refusing to name that distinction.
