ColouredFemmes is a collection of stories by women of colour; a safe space where black women can tell their stories and demystify what constitutes a woman of colour. ColouredFemmes’ objective is to break down the misconceptions, stereotypes and marginality of intersectionality, black feminism and essentially, women of colour. This way, they will be less marginalized in the eyes of those who don’t understand them, and for other women of colour, it can be a way to empower them and help them through shared wisdom and encouragement.
