European Americans and Women/Gender Issues

Pressley, Joey B.; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief outlines the involvement of European Americans (white) women in the three phases of the feminist movement in the United States and offers that white women controlled the direction of the movement during the first and second phases. This brief also discusses contemporary feminist movement organizing during what is currently called the third phase. It offers examples of "barriers" being eradicated and "bridges" that are being built between white (majority) and non-white (minority) women.
