The Impact of Microaggression on Black Women

2020 has been a year of tremendous revelation of the inequities in the United States of America. From Covid 19 to social justice, it took a global health pandemic for the country to view the importance of how racial disparities were impacting Black Americans. In addition, we are also highlighting the inequities that Black women face at work on a daily basis. From being criticised for their hair, to being labeled as an "Angry Black Woman," the fight to be considered equal at work needs to be amplified. The women's movement for equal pay and consideration has been visibly segregated, although Black women participate for fairness for all women. Microaggression are the subtle sayings and actions of others toward Black women, which may be innocent in nature, but harmful to their confidence.
