Women of Color Glossary

I thought it would be nice to add a glossary page because there are many ways to define key terms of topics discussed in this blog.  I am not saying these definitions are the only way these terms are defined but this is how the terms are defined in this blog within the context it is written.

* Terms will be added frequently

Black women – women of African descent, including all women a part of the diaspora.

Colored girl – women of African descent, including all women a part of the diaspora. Taken from the term referenced in Ntozake Shange’s , For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When The Rainbow is Enuf literary work.

Perm – applying a chemical treatment that gives long-lasting straightness to the hair
