ColouredFemmes is a collection of stories by black women. Through anecdotes, poetry and diary entries, this platform is a safe space to reveal thoughts and testimonies on love, race, feminism, relationships, health, family, career, etc.
Aside from providing a safe space for black women, ColouredFemmes’s objective is to break down the misconceptions, stereotypes, and marginality of intersectionality, black feminism and essentially, black women. By giving a space to often times voiceless women, their stories, views and lives can be less marginalized and stigmatized by those who do not understand them. And for other black women, it will also empower them and give them a voice and a way to, in turn, help others by sharing their thoughts as well as pieces of wisdom and encouragement.
