This essay urges for the need to explore one’s privileges and oppressions through Feminist Arabness. Through intersectionality, the author brings forth various experiences as a woman of color. By exploring privileges and oppressions, the goal is to bring contestations of domination into conversation with neoliberalism, reflexivity and ethical communication. Thus, this study is a call to highlight the need for an integrated approach that combines theory, and Autoethnography in order to reflect a richer intersectional analysis that combines both privileges and oppressions as identities. It is also a call towards an intersectional feminist ethic that can in turn identify the connections between one’s privileges and disadvantages and how it relates to ethics and reflexivity.
