The term womanist was popularized by poet, author, and activist Alice Walker in her widely acclaimed collection of essays, In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens: Womanist Prose (1983). Walker’s description resonated with Black women and other women of color and others for whom the term feminist was inadequate for naming their multiple and simultaneous experiences of race, caste, sexuality, gender, and class discrimination.
