Problematizing the Race Consciousness of Women of Color.
Brush, Paula Stewart
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, v27 n1 p171-98 Aut 2001
Suggests that feminist studies of the intersection of race and gender have failed to problematize the race consciousness of women of color. Situates debates about the situation historically, focusing on the situation of black women. Argues that feminist studies assume race consciousness among all women of color, revealing race consciousness as an issue of both theoretical and activist concern. (SM)
