Solange Knowles is a ‘proud black feminist’ who wants to feel intersectionality

The Game Plan: Strategies for Entrepreneurs

I’ve never listened of this magazine, BUST, though here’s their latest cover. Solange Knowles rocks her healthy hair and dual of a bushiest eyebrows I’ve ever seen in my life. Unlike my bangs-hatred weird flag, that we fly proudly, we indeed try to tamp down my dislike of careless brows. we know large brows are in character these days and a trend is opposite hyper-groomed brows. But we feel like Bust went out of their approach to make Solange’s brows demeanour like crazy caterpillars are on her face. Still, it’s a teenager oppose and we know I’m in a minority with my gut-reaction of “take caring of your brows, ladies!” stance. Anyway, Solange talked to Bust about black feminism, intersectionality and more.

What feminism means to her: “I am a unapproachable black feminist and womanist and I’m intensely unapproachable of a work that’s being done. I’m a feminist who wants not usually to hear a tenure intersectionality, though indeed feel it, and see a expansion of what intersectional feminism can indeed achieve. we wish women’s rights to be equally honored, and uplifted, and heard…but we wish to see us fighting a quarrel for all women — women of color, a LGBTQ sisters, a Muslim sisters. we wish to see millions of us marching out there for a rights, and we wish to see us out there marching for a rights of women like Dajerria Becton, who was physique slammed by a patrolman while she was in her swimsuit for simply existent as a young, vocal, black girl. we cruise we are inching closer and closer there, and for that, we am unequivocally proud.”

Growing adult in a residence of women.“I grew adult in a residence with 5 women. My mother, my sister B [Beyoncé], Kelly indeed changed in with us when we was five. And my other — we also cruise [her] my sister, though she’s indeed my initial cousin, Angie — she changed in with us when we was 13. So this domicile was all women’s work. Literally. And there was positively zero that couldn’t be finished between us. My father was super intelligent and shining and instilled many smashing qualities in us, though my mom was unequivocally a heart and essence of a family.”

I trust that about Tina Knowles-Lawson. While Mathew Knowles had a expostulate and a intuition to make his daughters into stars, we don’t cruise Bey and Solange have a good attribute with their father during this point. Tina has always been there for them, she’s always been their still strength behind-the-scenes. As for what Solange says about feminism and intersectionality… word. The story about Dajerria Becton still upsets me. The video of a patrolman pinning down and assaulting a black child in a bikini for no reason still fills me with rage.
