Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Ranging from the age of slavery to contemporary injustices, this groundbreaking history of race, gender and class inequality by the radical political activist Angela Davis offers an alternative view of female struggles for liberation.

Tracing the intertwined histories of the abolitionist and women's suffrage movements, Davis examines the racism and class prejudice inherent in so much of white feminism, and in doing so brings to light new pioneering heroines, from field slaves to mill workers, who fought back and refused to accept the lives into which they were born.

Just phenomenal.

So glad I finally got around to reading this and I’m so glad I did. Women, Race and Class is a remarkable piece of writing that discusses the intersectionality of race, class and gender that everyone should read at least once in their lives.

The best foundation for anyone socially minded

a fantastic book was a little disappointed Davis didn't read it herself but nothing can be perfect.
