For centuries, violence has been done in the name of—and even physically enacted by—white women. By examining historical contexts in conjunction with personal story-sharing exercises, we confront how white supremacy shows up in our own behavior. Through vulnerable discussions about individual complicity, we empower attendees to disrupt white supremacy from within their own communities.

Organizers Sophie Ellman-Golan, Rhiannon Childs, and Heather Marie Scholl (two white women and one Black woman) designed the Confront White Womanhood workshop to interrogate the ways white supremacy manifests within feminist spaces.

At this session, we will be joined by Jewel Cadet from BYP100. We will focus on the white history of feminism and the ways efforts for white female empowerment have harmed People of Color. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how white women can take tangible steps to interrupt our own racial biases and confront the ways we cause harm. We believe that white women can be better accomplices in the fight for freedom and are committed to helping them embody that change

Tickets are $20.

Partial ticket proceeds will be donated to BYP100 NYC, additional donations will be collected during the workshop.

Purchase tickets here.

BYP100 is a national, member-based organization of Black 18-35 year old activists and organizers, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. We do this through building a network focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy, and political education using a Black queer feminist lens. Donations will specifically benefit the NYC chapter which has done educational actions about Marion Sims, Swipe It Forward, Anti-Columbus day tours, and HOME (Housing Over Monitoring and Evictions) campaign.

Please note that the Bureau will not be open to the general public during the workshop.
