Age, Class, And Sex: Women Redefining Difference By Audre Lorde

Satisfactory Essays

As Audre Lorde writes in her article Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference, “Certainly there are very real differences between us of race, age, and sex. But it is not those differences between us that are separating us. It is rather our refusal to recognize those differences.” The #SayHerName movement does not just say they are trying to end violence that threaten women in general but women of color and transgender women. It is not just a problem with all women but specifically women of color. Color-Blindness or the statements “I don’t see color or race; I see us as the human race.” does not allow people to recognized an individual personal traits and characteristics and that some people do have problems that only affect them.
