Contre Misogynoir. Des Caribéennes francophones entre Black Feminism et afroféminisme

Abstract : Misogynoir : a term which perfectly encompasses the social reality of the Black women in the United States, as well as in Metropolitan France : it designates all the discriminatory demonstrations and behaviours toward Black and colored women, based all at once on sexism, racism and colourism. If this terminology is quite recent, this phenomenon is as old as the binary world from which it emerged (White vs Black) : the plantation society and its avatars. Besides, the intersectional aspects of the period itself can’t be denied with the Phenotypical-social classes. In this talk, we will question the places and stances of the French-speaking Caribbean women within the feminist movements in Paris. Thus, will we take into account the pluriethnicity of the Black Feminine communities in France and the bounds they weave with those various areas of settlement : Paris and suburbs, Caribbean and Black America.
