Misogynoir is a word used to describe how racism and anti-Blackness alter the experience of misogyny for Black women, specifically. It alludes to specifically Black womenâ€™s experiences with gender and how both racism and anti-Blackness alters that experience diametrically from White women… and differently from non-Black women of colour….
I recently saw a thread of false information and non-Black women of colour co-opting to erase Black womanhood, Black womenâ€™s experiences and Black womenâ€™s epistemology from the concept of misogynoir. Again, the origin is in Blackwomanhood and the term was coined by a queer Black woman, Moya Bailey.
