Only recently have the writings of women of color (WOC) significantly influenced the field of feminism. These WOC bring unique identities, concerns, and cultures to the feminist movement. In this article, three waves of feminism are explored in order to understand the roles and perspectives of WOC, the feminisms that they developed, and how their ideas are similar to and different from traditional theories. The effects of privilege, power, race, sexual orientation, and disability are reviewed in understanding how they helped construct ideas on feminism for women who are Asian, Black, Indian, or Latina. The chapter concludes with an exploration of how various dynamics have led to the current state of an intersection of multiple identities and oppressions.
