I Believe in Intersectional Feminism…

I remember when Tarul approached me with the idea of the Sanaya Set.  She was so passionate about the mission of Social Justice and Self Care and promoting Intersectional Feminism. Naturally, the first thing I did was look up what Intersectional Feminism meant…

When I read the definition of Intersectional Feminism.   It resonated so strongly with me.   The idea that Feminism goes beyond gender.  Intersectional Feminism is aimed at understanding overlapping identities, and how these factors impact the way we experience oppression and discrimination.  This includes race, class, ethnicity, religion, gender identify, sexual orientation disability, and other backgrounds.

Tarul’s enthusiasm was infectious.  I found myself wanting to be a part of this project.  Correction.  I found myself NEEDING to be a part of this project.   I knew that this was a unique opportunity to do something special, to do something that mattered. 

As the mother of two daughters, it is important that I raise them to understand what it means to use their voice and not be afraid to stand up for what they believe. 

We take a lot of care in curating the items in the Sanaya Set.  Our hope is that with each Sanaya Set, we can do the most good not just for the charities we support, but also for the womxn entrepreneurs who are brave enough to pursue their passions.

Thank you for your support!
