Imperial feminism is a term used by Pratibha Parmar, a black British  filmmaker, to describe the struggles of black women in Britain in the  1970s, when the wave of feminism which emerged rarely captured the  experiences of those women. If it did, it was often from a racist  perspective. It claims to stand in solidarity with Third World women but  in fact perpetuates stereotypes of these cultures as backward through  the use of marginalising language and sweeping assumptions.
This form of feminism overlooks the important fact that  many of the cultural practices shunned by white feminists have been  reinforced by a cycle of colonialism.
