And then I learned about the history of Europe — that as Christianity moved north, midwives, nurses, and so-called “witches” were sought after in a campaign of genocide — about four million women were killed by European leaders. So the reason that European men could do this to our people is because they had already cut the umbilical cord to their homeland.
I began to see the reasons for the feminist movement as a healing for white women. As Indigenous people we never experienced our men doing to us what European men had done to European women. I have never identified myself as a feminist even though we are all strong for the rights of our people.
Something to consider when people start saying that brutalization of women is mostly perpetrated by men of colour.
