Misogynoir: Tracking the Importance of a Black Feminist Construct Across Time

The term "misogynoir" was coined by Black feminist sociologist Moya Bailey in 2010, and since then has enjoyed a rich theoretical life in Black online counterpublics. This bibliography is composed of texts written by that grapple with misogynoir as a framework for understanding Black women's oppression. The accompanying visualization reflect the centrality of intellectuals and publications that are not affiliated with academic institutions.

In order to build this list into a resource that is robust and nonhierarchical, I am crowdsourcing contributions and researching daily to make additions. Please note that this bibliography excludes news reports that make reference to the construct but don't reflect on its meaning (although tracking these mentions is also important and will likely become a part of this page later). It also excludes authors that state that they are engaging with misogynoir from an outsider's perspective, such as this indispensable piece by Jessica Luther. I will be collecting and sharing these pieces elsewhere on the site.
