As a white women, I won’t even pretend that I have any right to tell you how to feel (about this or anything else). There certainly is a problem in the women’s movement overall about white experience, etc. However, my understanding of #TimesUp was that it was focused on helping working women, many of whom are of color — for example, hotel maids who experience a truly shocking rate of harassment from both bosses and customers. I do not claim to be an expert on this topic, so I am willing to learn. Feel free to enlighten me.
