What it Means to be a True Ally to Women of Color?

Hint: There’s a lot more to it than sharing a social injustice post on Facebook, shouting “Hashtag Feminism!”, and boycotting Starbucks #FakeAllyship

Watching how much of the toxic discourse that went down in the RWA PAN forum, and how it managed (unsurprisingly) to drown out the voices that needed to be heard, I want to share a bit about allyship. My struggle to look at this from a 30,000-foot view and a WOC is real, so I’m just gonna be real. Apologies when I switch from an “us” to “them” perspective.
