As feminists rise up and flood the streets in the years since Trump’s election, the movement has simultaneously strengthened its own internal critique. A new term has bloomed in the grassroots: white feminism. But what exactly does it mean, and is it a new phenomenon? In this talk, presented as part of our Inside the Center series, 2017–18 Humanities Center fellow Kyla Schuller, shares the insights of her new work, The Trouble with White Women: A Counterhistory of Feminism, revealing that feminism has long been comprised of multiple streams in tension and often outright conflict.
