"In other words, #AskHerMore and #OscarsSoWhite are not mutually exclusive social movements. They call attention to the intersectional forms of oppression that continue to marginalize women and people of color, and those whose identities intersect these issues—women of color—experience the most invisibility. Ironically, the Oscar telecast worked overtime to represent people of color, as a steady parade of black celebrities—Lupita Nyong’o, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kevin Hart, Eddie Murphy, David Oyelowo, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana, Terrence Howard and Oprah Winfrey—presented awards."
