On balancing career and family as a woman of color.

“My reading of history suggests there has always been a divide between white women activists who have seen a connection to the concerns and struggles of women of color, and others who don’t think about it or couldn’t care less, such as the organizers of the historic 1913 suffragist march on Washington who insisted that black women march separately at the back (which Ida B. Wells, a journalist and antilynching activist, refused to do, by the way).”

Movements within movements, and struggles within struggles. As much as I get wound up about the lack of women in corporate and governmental leadership roles, I need to remember that there are so many other battles.
