Misogynoir

Trevor Noah killing it with a piece on black women not being given the credit they deserve. Did you know that black women started BLM? It was these ladies pictured above.

Black women also helped to start Me Too and a black trans woman catalyzed the stonewall riots. Black women were also silenced at Martin Luther King rallies. This is why I keep talking about Mayor London Breed of San Fran because despite being one of the only sane and smart leaders during this pandemic, no one knows who she is.

Misogyny is not just about violence or harassment, it’s often about not being given credit where credit is due. This is a huge problem in the professional world for women and far worse for black women. And I learned a new word:

misogynoir

noun

the specific hatred, dislike, distrust, and prejudice directed toward black women (often used attributively):misogynoir attitudes and comments;The media’s erasure of the contributions of black women to the project was called out as an instance of misogynoir.

It sounds so sexy for such a shitty thing.
