A New Knowledge: Feminism from an Africentric Perspective.
Garth, Phyllis Ham
Thresholds in Education, v20 n2-3 p8-13 May-Aug 1994
Classifies and discusses Afrikana women's feminism within the following categories: Black Feminism, Womanism, and Afrikana Womanism. Clearly, the mainstream Euroamerican conceptualization of feminism is an inappropriate framework to address the concerns and issues of Afrikana womanism. Privileged Eurofeminists have failed to acknowledge Afrikana women's lived experiences and the multiple, interlocking forms of oppression shaping their lives. (Contains 18 references.) (MLH)
