How Liberated Are We: A Black Perception of the Feminist Movement.
Martin, Oneida L.; Friday, C. Jennifer
This study examined how blacks view the feminist movement and whether the type of college attended altered their attitudes. Data were assessed from 161 black college students (male and female) who attended either a predominantly black or predominantly white college. The chi-square test was used to measure and examine significant differences between the two groups. Results show that while 36% of the sample did not identify with the feminist movement, 55% did find some feminist ideas to be similar to theirs. Individual differences in views about the feminist movement did exist, but these differences were not a reflection of college attended, nor, overall, of the sex of the respondent. It is concluded that further investigation into the feminist attitudes of college students should be conducted and that black college students should be educated about the issues involved in the feminist movement.
