White women as Postmodern Vehicle of Black Oppression - 1 views

  •  
    An interesting journal article written by Ronald E. Hall describing the way in which white women have indirectly become a form of oppression to African Americans. Hall insists that the feminist movement happened at such an inoppurtune time that because it invariably coincided with the civil rights movement, issues of civil rigjts that were attempting to be addressed were pushed to the wayside in favor of addressing the concerns of white women and the feminist movement. It is an interesting perspective on both accounts and deserves a look.

Chicano Movement - 0 views

  •  
    I think that we have talked quite a bit about the women in the African American civil rights movement, but we have not really talked about the Chicano civil rights movement and the women involved with this movement. It would be a good idea for us to explore this movement and women in it as well.
