Womanism

Womanism is a social theory based on the discovery of the limitations of the second-wave feminism movement in regards to the history and experiences of black women, and other women of marginalized groups. Writer, poet, and activist Alice Walker is credited with coining the term "womanist". Since Walker's initial use, the term has evolved to envelop varied, and often opposing interpretations of conceptions such as feminism, men, and blackness.

Womanism centers the experiences of black women and adapts the collective ideology of many black women making the personal the political. This is in response to the mainstream feminist movement that often excludes black women and other women of color.
