This text addresses a crucial and highly-criticized aspect of the Women’s Liberation Movement: the lack of intersectionality, and the way that race and class-based power structures persisted within the movement. While white women fight for liberation mainly from their sex and normative gender-based rules, this text points out that black women could gain gender equality tomorrow and still face discrimination associated with race.
