The article has left me speechless and feeling overwhelmed. I am constantly fighting against those who use ‘woke’ as a derogatory term. It is exhausting and demotivating. In addition to the trauma of racism and sexism, one is re-traumatised by being stigmatised for conveying one’s experiences. In a group discussion recently, one of the members stated that they were leaving the U.K. because they feel that racism is so embedded in the culture that they believe it will never change.
