Jezebel's Koa Beck and The Root's Danielle Belton in Conversation

Producer: Phoebe Bradford, PJ Rickards, Creative Producer: Joon Chung

For Women’s History Month, Jezebel and The Root are partnering for JezeRoot, a series that focuses on women of color, domestic workers, and sex workers.

Jezebel editor-in-chief Koa Beck and The Root editor-in-chief Danielle Belton sat down to discuss the gender issues that society would rather you ignore—and why JezeRoot will address them. The two editors explained why immigration is a feminist issue, how privileged women often rely on the exploitation of domestic workers to “lean in,” and how some facets of feminism consider sex workers’ rights a taboo issue. They conclude (and lament): “The biggest issue that kind of exists within white feminism is that the end goal just seems to be like a white man.”
