Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her capacity to problematize widely accepted approaches to the study of the second wave enables us to see that field anew." Tim Hodgdon, Duke University, H-Net

“Roth has written an impressive book that makes a strong contribution to the growing literature on U.S. feminism.” -Lisa Sun-Hee Park, UC San Diego

“In Separate Roads to Feminism: Black, Chicana, and White Feminist Movements in American's Second Wave, Benita Roth performs the important task of rereading second-wave feminism from an intersectional (race-class-gender) perspective... I highly recommend Separate Roads to Feminism.” -Patricia Richards, University of Georgia

Book Description

This book is about the development of white women's liberation, Black feminism and Chicana feminism in the 1960's and 1970's, the era known as the "second wave" of U.S. feminist protest. The author explores the ways that feminist movements emerged from the Civil Rights/ Black Liberation movement, the Chicano movement, and the white left, and the processes that went into political decisions made by feminists to organize autonomously, and in their own racial/ethnic organizations. The book traces the effects that inequality had on the possibilities for feminist unity; the way that loyalties to the "men left behind" impacted feminist organizing, particularly by Black and Chicana feminists; and explores how ideas common throughout the left at the time shaped feminist organizing.

Format: Paperback
Historically accurate but certain assumptions and analysis lack more historical background. Although this throws the realities of women struggles and suffering in a patriarchal world, the bias is too much. It can misguide many and leave other feminists behind.
