A New Campaign Is Stressing The Importance Of Feminist Inclusion

"This campaign is an invitation to build a more inclusive movement that includes all genders, races, ethnicities, cultures and ages."

"The images I had of what a feminist is, growing up, were really these images of white women and privilege."

That's what Aisha Moodie-Mills, president and CEO of The Victory Fund, said in a video released on Monday for the Ms. Foundation's new campaign, #MyFeminismIs. The Ms. Foundation is a nonprofit which raises awareness about the challenges women face.

In the video, feminists spanning different genders, races and ages explain their original perceptions of what feminism meant, and how they grew to understand the movement and their place within it.

Video participants also share what their feminism is an expression of, and the importance of acceptance and inclusion.

“My feminism is a question," said MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry. "And the question is, what truths are missing here?"

The campaign is an open invitation to anyone who identifies as a feminist to "tell us what your feminism is" using the hashtag #MyFeminismIs.
