1968 Radical Feminist Essay On the Distinction Between Women's Liberation and the Civil Rights Movement

Pamphlet

Brown, Judith; Jones, Beverly. 1968. Toward a Female Liberation Movement. Boston, Mass. The New England Free Press published radical literature by feminists from the late sixties to the early eighties. In this particular essay, authors Beverly Jones and Judith Brown respond to the "Women's Manifesto" that was created at the 1967 Students for a Democratic Society convention. This rather scathing piece admonishes the grouping together of various social justice movements (in this case, women's liberation and civil rights) and encourages feminists to refocus on dismantling chauvinism and advancing their own cause. As the essay unfolds, Jones and Brown acknowledge that African Americans and women each face oppression; however, they reject the inclusion of any other marginalized groups in their efforts, stating that "people don't get radicalized fighting other people's battles." This staple-bound booklet, while age-toned, is in excellent condition. This fascinating artifact highlights the often discordant nature of second-wave feminism; it provides a close look at the movement before the birth of intersectionality. Overall very good condition.
