The State of Women Of Color in the US

The State of Women Of Color in the US

I like to have stats like this in my back pocket when people try to argue with me that “racism/sexism doesn’t really exist anymore. Is there any research to prove that?”

And then:
“What are the sources for this?”

What is this, a PhD panel? Whenever you’re having a casual conversation about racism/sexism with a white man/woman (not all of them obviously, but rarely have I encountered this while talking to another woman of color) suddenly they need to have accredited academic sources for everything you’re saying. I never ask for sources to back up THEIR DAY TO DAY EXPERIENCE.
