This study utilizes critical collaborative autoethnography to explore the development, identity, and experiences as a feminist from five Women of Color doctoral students. Given that existing research on the experiences of doctoral women of color remains sparse, the purpose of this study is to expand the knowledge by highlighting and validating the lived experiences of doctoral women of color in the academy from a feminist perspective. Through the use of collaborative autoethnography, the authors explore and interrogate their individual journeys as self-identified or aspiring feminists. The findings present the living reality and complexity involving history, contexts, intersection of identities, conflicts, inter-/intra-racial coalition, and activism through these Women of Color doctoral students.
