Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Anderson (history, Univ. of Arizona) traces the complex patterns of discrimination against three major groups of racial ethnic women in the United States in the 20th century: Native American, Mexican American, and African American. Focusing on specific issues of employment, family relationships, and the role of gender in relation to race and class, Anderson sketches the resulting internal conflicts within an ethnic group as well as conflict with the dominant culture. Federal government intervention in acculturating Native Americans, for example, not only created conflict between whites and Native Americans but also disrupted social, economic, and family relationships within Native American groups. Anderson's scholarly study adds valuable perspectives from racial ethnic women to a richer understanding of American history. Appropriate for college and women's studies collections.?Patricia A. Beaber, Trenton State Coll. Lib., N.J.

From Booklist

Over the past decades, tremendous advances have been achieved by American women in the battle against discrimination. Historically dominated by white, middle-class women, the American feminist movement has not been as successful for racial ethnic women. History professor Anderson shows how dramatically different the discrimination experience and the struggle for equality are for women in three ethnic groups, Native American, Mexican American, and African American. Often caught between competing systems of male domination, these three groups have found traditional American feminism a woefully inadequate force, offering only meager solutions to their problems. Anderson's rich, exciting book highlights their specific problems, shows how racism undermines their efforts at achieving equality, and provides a historical perspective for a better understanding of the current situations of these women.
