The Type of contemporary or second wave feminism that appeals to me the most is that of Black Feminism This type of feminism appeals to me the most because I feel that the black feminists are the strongest I feel this way because not only are they fighting for rights as women they are also fighting for rights as people and as a race in this world Black women are oppressed because of their race and again because they are black Yet nonetheless they continue to fight for womens rights and for black rights In this cruel and ugly world they find strength within each other to rise above their oppressors and continue to fight as slow as the process may be They want to join other women in the fights for rights but at the same time realize that it is a step-by-step process and they must earn rights as a race before their voices can be heard as fighters for the gender They have a strong sense of community and work hard to help each other Black feminists offered a lot of insight into what working towards freedom was it was not only about womens rights Shirley Chisholm said Working toward our own freedom we can help others work free from the traps of their stereotypes In the end antiblack antifemale and all forms of discrimination are equivalent to the same thing andtihumanism This is something that perhaps a white feminist would not of thought of because they were too worried about their own rights I appreciate black feminism the most because I believe they are the smartest when it comes to rising above oppression their demands are not irrational and they represent all oppressed people They have a strong sense of what they are fighting for and at the same time understand the complexity and struggle that comes with the fight The type of feminism that appeals to me the least
