The Big Draw at the Women’s March Conference: Confronting White Womanhood

Brett T., Twitchy, October 30, 2017

This weekend in Detroit was the Women’s Convention, an effort by the Women’s March to keep the pussy hat momentum going from January’s gatherings in Washington, D.C. and around the world.

The convention flew under the media radar for the most part, but Cosmopolitan was paying attention and wrote extensively about the most popular panel of the weekend, something called “Confronting White Womanhood.”


In fact, the Friday panel was such a huge draw, the presenters ran it again on Saturday.


“Ellman-Golan then gave a condensed history of instances where white women have been both directly and indirectly responsible for violence against black men,” writes Hannah Smothers. Then, “Scholl gave a miniature lesson in ‘white saviorism’ and spoke about the ways even a well-meaning act from a liberal white woman can be inherently racist.”
