In both cases, the fight for African American rights took prescedence over the rights of women. While during the first wave of feminism, black women were ignored by the suffragettes, during the second wave of feminism, black women were faced with the choice of going forward in a women's movement that, once again, didn't really include them, or supporting the rights of African Americans as a race. A difficult choice. Davis clearly elucidates the failings of the both waves of feminism to include ALL women and shows how necessary it is for women, regardless of race, to work together.
If this does not sound like your idea of Utopia, maybe you should read Ms. Davis's book. She describes the parallel womens movements, abolition movements, how they started together, how they were driven apart---and who benefits when those looking for a better life decide to abandon old allies and start thinking only of themselves.
This is a must read and makes a great gift for young Black men and women.
