Researching the positionality of childfree and never-married women of color from a decolonial feminist framework.
I am currently a Doctoral Candidate at Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador. My dissertation studies childfree, never-married, single women of color. I will complete my program in June of 2024. My two comprehensive examination subjects were Inequality and Gender.
I am looking forward to continuing my research on the positionality of childfree and never-married women of color from a decolonial feminist framework. My other research interests include – single studies, feminist standpoint theory, Black feminisms, cultural studies, and media studies. My goal is to continue my research as a member of a Sociology Department, Women Studies Program, or independent research organization.
Through advocacy and engagement, I am committed to lift as I climb. Too often women of color have been ignored in scholarship. As Anna Julia Cooper understood the “radical potential of education,” is only a possibility. It is up to us to make it a reality. Therefore, I have embraced the Black Women’s Club Movement’s slogan lift as we climb and it is my intention to do just that. My academic concentrations include using the theoretical perspectives of decolonial feminism and standpoint theory to analyze the matters of sexism, racism and systematic oppression through an intersectional lens. My ambition is to continue engaging within academia, the media and community organizations about issues that impact the lives of women of color.
Please get in touch with me to learn more about my work and research. I look forward to collaborating with other feminists.
