On Balancing Career and Family as a Woman of Color -

I have much respect for Michel Martin, her trajectory, her presence in the media world, and her frankness in this piece.

And of course, feelings about it’s content.

But it’s only the end that I will comment on. These are her feelings and I am in agreement and don’t want the pity or guilt of white women. But I’m very very hesitant to ask them to use their privilege - in that scenario their power can easily become a thing doled out to those worthy - and who is that? Those of us women of color who went to college? Who work alongside them? How can we work to improve things for all of us when what makes so much of the “us” different should not be ignored?
