Black women is both a multi-faceted cultural identity and a powerful social construct with different meanings in different places. For some, it is those women born on the African continent; for others it includes the descendants of slaves brought from Africa to the Americas. For others, it includes women of the African diaspora or Aboriginal women in Australia. Black women have sometimes been seen in stereotypical ways, resulting in increased risk for them. But they have also been important leaders throughout human history.
