Why the 'x' in Womxn?

You may spot words like womxn, womyn, or other variations when learning about Women’s History. These words are still pronounced as ‘women’ and have been found in writing since the 1970s. Intersectional feminists in the 2010s adopted ‘womxn’ to be explicitly inclusive of women who have been frequently left out of women’s history and the feminist movement, especially Black women, Indigenous women, and other women of color. Conversely, it also has a negative connotation for transgender communities, as it has been used to separate transgender women into a different category from cisgender women. The historical and social context of ‘womxn’ is important because it allows us to better understand all women’s experiences, identities, and language, as well as inform us as researchers to keep our vocabulary intentional and up to date. 

For Children and Young Adults

From the Social Justice Books website, "In honor of Women’s History Month, each day Social Justice Books features a children’s book we recommend to highlight grassroots women’s history in the United States: Women’s History Month: A Book Every Day".
