Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This project grew out of a number of discussions, some heated, others humorous, many frustrating, about the challenges associated with crossrace alliances between women of Color and White women. What follows is a discussion between five women of Color (two Asian Americans, Pamela Chao and Kristi Ryujin; an African American, Marquita Chamblee; an Indigenous woman, Malia Villegas, and a Latina/Chicana, Theresa Torres) and four White women (Angelina Castagno, LouAnn Gerken, Liz Leckie and Rachelle Winkle-Wagner) in conversation about the status of crossrace relations between women, challenges associated with creating alliances across race and their hopes for this project.
