She notes in the "Acknowledgements" section of this book (published in 1989) that "My mother remarked that since I had the habit of devoting so much of my time to the preparation of speeches, I should consider publishing them in book form."
Here are some quotations from the book:
"If the first wave of the women's movement began in the 1840's, and the second wave in the 1960's, then we are approaching the crest of a third wave in the final days of the 1980's." (Ch. 1)
"The process of empowerment cannot be simplistically defined in accordance with our own particular class interests. We must learn to lift as we climb." (Ch. 1)
"Moreover, as has been pointed out in studies on sexual assault---and as indeed was the case during the era of slavery---proportionately more white men rape Black women than Black men rape white women." (Ch. 3)
"Peace is a sisters' issue too." (Ch. 6)
"If we as Black people in the United States want to guarantee that the dream for a better life is realized through our children, we must recognize the importance of setting our sights on a socialist future." (Ch. 7)
