Redefining What Femininity Means To Me Now That I’m A Free Woman

As a black woman, my social media feeds have been inundated with shares, likes, and comments from my fellow friends who choose to follow various divestment groups for black women.

The divestment movement basically entails moving on from cultural norms that have kept black women and girls from exploring their horizons and possibilities to better themselves. In these groups, women discuss self-love and self-care, healthy living, healing from trauma, and of course, relationships and dating.
