Individual feminism, that of women like Ivanka Trump and Kellyanne Conway, is the belief that if you work really hard, and if you’re rich, white, and blonde enough, you can ignore sexism and achieve “empowerment.”

This type of “feminism” is aptly named, because it gives no fucks about other women. It’s an extremely self-centered “feminism.” It caters to already rich and powerful (white) women, the ones in the least need of actual feminism, over women whose experiences with sexism intersect with racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc. It challenges nothing, and it accomplishes nothing.

I am not buying this faux feminism that they are selling. If your feminism is all about yourself, not about lifting up other women – all women, it is fake and pointless.
