In the present decades unlike the past, the word ‘feminist' has become a title to brand anyone who talks and writes about the feminine sex. After all the term is dynamic and it is always discussed and conferenced by both sexes in media and even the internet.

Her solution to all of this is trying to encourage women to believe in themselves and to keep hope alive, trying to create an environment to "protect black women".
