Hashtags, Feminism and Twitter Breakdowns

From Huffington Post: The hashtag #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen is raising eyebrows and raising awareness on Twitter about the discrimination women of color experience within the feminist movement.

At the center of it all is Mikki Kendal, who created the hashtag in response to a rant by the self-proclaimed “male feminist,” Hugo Schwyzer.

Schwyzer stated on Twitter that he’d been particularly awful to women of color. A social media firestorm followed, in which women of color questioned the inclusiveness of mainstream feminism.
