Women of Color in U.S. Society by Maxine Baca Zinn


Women of Color in U.S. Society by Maxine Baca Zinn

Women of color articulate shared experiences of subordination and survival


A volume like this is badly needed in women's studies and ethnic studies because the emphasis...has been on...white women and racial-ethnic men, respectively. The book's greatest importance lies in its political significance. It has the potential of forcing modification of many assumptions on which contemporary feminism is based. And the more such theories emanate from and are applicable to the lives of diverse American women, the ore profound and useful they will be.

-Judith Rollins, Simmons College [T]his collection should be welcomed by all those concerned with issues of race, gender, and class in American society. It presents a wealth of information, data, and analysis in direct, refreshingly jargon-free language, and would make an excellent text for undergraduate courses in sociology, women's studies, and ethnic studies.
