Black feminist traditions are foundational to our social movements, inclusive policies, our revolutionary spirit, and to a true democracy.
In our journey toward freedom, it is essential that folks across the spectrum of Black identities understand that the fight for a Black feminist future is a fight for their future, as well. Feminism is pluralized to recognize that there are many ways to be a feminist and that there are various oppressions that people who believe in the equality and worth of women suffer.

Black feminisms provide a blueprint for everyone’s liberation. From defunding the police to significantly reducing climate change to ending the scourge of sexual violence, Black feminisms provide tools we can use to confront and interrupt power.
In March, the M4BL hosted Black Feminisms for Liberation — how Black feminist traditions are foundational to our social movements and revolutionary spirit, to inclusive policies, and to a true democracy.
Watch and listen to Paris Hatcher, founder of Black Feminist Future; Aisaha Shahidah Simmons, survivor, cultural worker, and dharma practitioner; Dani Ayers, CEO of Me Too; Jamarah Amani, executive director of the Southern Birth Justice Network, and many other Black Feminist movement leaders.
