The event was simple. It began when the first previews of It’s a Jungle Out There! hit the mainstream feminist blogosphere.
No… It began when Amanda Marcotte, writer of It’s a Jungle Out There and well-known progressive political blogger wrote an essay without referencing the women of color who gave her the ideas.
No, that wasn’t the first. It began when the first cover of It’s A Jungle Out There was first released, and criticized for racist imagery.

It began when prominent feminists began siding with Clinton over Obama, claiming gender was bigger than race… Or was it a fallout in the ’70s at a feminist convention over racism?

No, let’s face it. It began in 1607 when the first African slaves were brought to the continent by English settlers.
Or was it earlier when the first white guy set foot in the Western Hemisphere? It wasn’t exactly the right foot to start out on.
