A womanist then is a strong Black woman who has sometimes been mislabeled as a domineering castrating matriarch. A womanist is one who has developed survival strategies in spite of the oppression of her race and sex in order to save her family and her people.

…In any case, womanist means being and acting out who you are and interpreting the reality for yourself. In other words, Black women speak out for themselves.

Jacquelyn Grant, ‘Womanist Theology’
