White women should not be in a category with minorities in this context. The problem is that definition of 'minority' centralizes gender, when our actual observed statistical minority is about race and/or ethnicity.

White women have already benefited from policies such as affirmative action that have simply worked to maintain white supremacy. Subbing white men with white women doesn't change anything at all, if we focus on these institutions as white supremacist ones, which they are. This approach perpetuates white supremacy.
