Hathor Legacy and Straight White Women

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 12, 2007

BetaCandy, who blogs at Blind Privilege, came to  a certain realization of an institute she administers for that studies the portrayals of women in the media:

Hathor was always intended to be about women and how they are marginalized. It wasn’t that I didn’t care how other people – people of color, queer people, etc. – were treated by the media. I’m very interested in those issues, too. I was just sticking to the issue of women because it’s where my expertise lies.

A few months ago, it hit me: some women are queer. Some women are of color. If you don’t cover them, it’s not a feminist media site. It’s just a site about white heterosexual women, and how we get marginalized.
