Throughout all waves of feminism a rift created by race has existed–the rights, representations, and treatments asked of by feminists of different races (namely white and black feminists in America) have always had slight discrepancies. The problem with this has not always been how to overcome these differences, or even how to divide out goals to represent all women better, but understanding the different meanings of feminism to other cultures and colors and being literate of the constraints and difficulties other races have with current feminist policies, and how when gains are made politically and socially, not only one group of female’s lives are changing. Isis H. Settles, Jennifer S. Pratt-Hyatt, and NiCole T. Buchanan all have done excellent research on what these different definitions of feminism and in particular womanhood mean to black and white women in America in Through the Lens of Race–be wary of very insightful statistics, though.
