The latest carnival of feminists has a whole section devoted to women of color. This of course is important because women of color's issues need to be heard. People who say we don't need feminism should listen to our stories. Whether it's Hispanic/Black/Native American women facing jail violence, Asian women facing guys with disgusting fetishes who objectify and stalk them, or transpeople of color fighting on three or maybe four or five fronts, our issues are complex, and emerging. Really, people who think feminism is about whether you shave your legs or not should break out of their box.
