On Beyoncé as a Feminist Icon

One of ProEQ’s new favorite writers, Lauren Rankin, wrote another amazing piece last week on Beyoncé and her role as a feminist icon.

Discussing disparagement of Beyoncé, comparing that to feminist treatment of Lena Dunham, the article condemns attacks by “white women” deciding who is “feminist enough.” In the words of the author:

Until white feminists stop policing women of color’s feminist credentials, they are doomed to repeat the same racist patriarchy we are supposed to be combating.
