“Sisterhood doesn't mean yelling "RAH RAH RAH GO YOU" at everything the women and girls we know do. Sisterhood is being able to cheer you on when you've done well, challenge you when you can do better, and admonish you when you drop the ball.

White women, you wanna talk about sisterhood. Welcome. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Get comfortable with being called out. Drop the victimhood, and know that being disagreed with is not always "bullying." Communication is cultural and it's interesting how we have to temper how we speak to you, and put critiques in the middle of compliment sandwiches. If you wanna be a part of anything resembling sisterhood, you're going to need to know that your feelings will be hurt along the way.”
