"African American women and white women have a tense political relationship. Some white women…"

“African American women and white women have a tense political relationship. Some white women activists relied on racial arguments in the nineteenth-century struggle for suffrage. For example,
feminist pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton abandoned the fight for black male suffrage after the Civil War and relied on powerfully articulated racist and anti-immigrant reasoning to make a case for
white women’s suffrage. In the 1960s and 1970s, second-wave white feminists failed to understand that their concerns with workplace entry were not shared by black women, who had long been wage earners. Research suggests that most contemporary black women express little solidarity with feminist agendas they perceive as dominated by the interests of white women.”
