10 Privileges for Women of Color

  • We command respect. Not because others fear to offend me, but because of the confidence I have as a woman of color.
  • We desire inclusion, however, I do not need it. If someone doesn’t invite you to their party, throw your own – and make it bigger. 😉
  • We am able to lead by example. Women of color stand out when we defy the silly stereotypes against us (loud, uneducated, mad at the world, ect..)
  • Our legacy is strength. Women of color are economically disadvantaged, typically due to oppression. However, we are known for overcoming challenges.
  • We are comfortable being uncomfortable. Women of color are used to the stares and judgments of others , we take it all in stride and strength. We also accept that we can not change or control anyone other than ourselves.
  • We are perceived as persistent. Each day, we navigate arenas that don’t fit, or even welcome us.
  • We are perceived as ambitious. Women of color have to work harder than others for everything from career advancement to financial security.
  • We can educate others. Women of color don’t want sympathy, we want others to understand our struggles.
  • We can speak up. Women of color can disregard stereotypes of being aggressive and speak up for themselves.
  • We can strive for equitable pay, it just takes more effort. Women of color see roadblocks, and navigate around them.
