    I can't believe how readable this book is, considering how dense it also is in historical detail. The research that went into it must be astounding, but it flows in most places like a conversation with a (really well-informed) friend. Along with many subjects I am familiar with, I was ...

    Why I read this book: Angela Davis is a pioneer in terms of black liberation and gender equality. I have always admired and appreciated her writing and her being. Content: 1/1 It?s important for readers to understand that this is not just a book about women, race and class. It ...

    Troublant de lire aujourd'hui ce que Davis a écrit en 1983: Some of the most flagrant symptoms of social deterioration are acknowledged as serious problems only when they have assumed such epidemic proportions that they appear to defy solution. Rape is a case in point. In the United ...

    Masterful overview of America's women's movement from pre-Civil War to the end of the 1970's, especially concerning the experiences and oppressions of Black women and girls. You likely didn't learn this stuff in school. My only gripe is that Davis assumes we understand her vision of so...

    Although first published in 1982, almost 30 years ago (the edition I read was published in 2002, but as far as I understand it is just a reprint, and no changes have been made), the book sadly remains just as relevant and important today. I say sadly, because Women, Race & Class sh...

    Women, Race & Class is a phenomenal book and great introduction to the issues of racism and classism in the feminist movement. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in race or gender issues, but who doesn't know where to begin. Davis' book is a great starter for anyone...

    This is one of the best histories of the feminist movement I've ever read. Most such histories have limited their scope to a particular issue (e.g., reproductive rights, suffrage, housework) and to a particular constituency (women of a particular race or class), but Davis masterfully b...

    I feel blasphemous rating something by Angela Davis as just "okay," because she's an idol of mine, but here goes. I feel like this book was a game-changer when it came out. In 1983, I'm sure I would have given this book 5 stars. But I wasn't alive yet in 1983. In fact, my mother wa...

    A good summary history of the ways the 3 topics in the title have intersected in American history - their struggles and the conflicts between them (predominantly focusing on gender and race). Of course it doesn't cover everything or in deep detail but it's written in a very clear, easy...

    I find myself rereading passages of this book and getting so effin' giddy. I love the way she writes. I love the way she thinks and processes. ...

    Women, Race & Class is a phenomenal book and great introduction to the issues of racism and classism in the feminist movement. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in race or gender issues, but who doesn't know where to begin. Davis' book is a great starter for anyone...

    This is one of the best histories of the feminist movement I've ever read. Most such histories have limited their scope to a particular issue (e.g., reproductive rights, suffrage, housework) and to a particular constituency (women of a particular race or class), but Davis masterfully b...

    I feel blasphemous rating something by Angela Davis as just "okay," because she's an idol of mine, but here goes. I feel like this book was a game-changer when it came out. In 1983, I'm sure I would have given this book 5 stars. But I wasn't alive yet in 1983. In fact, my mother wa...

    A good summary history of the ways the 3 topics in the title have intersected in American history - their struggles and the conflicts between them (predominantly focusing on gender and race). Of course it doesn't cover everything or in deep detail but it's written in a very clear, easy...

    I adore this book. It is one of those books that blew apart the white middle class way I was raised, and it made me a smarter and better person. Her ideas are so powerful that they deserve to be read and reread. ...

    As timeless today as it was in 1983, Women, Race, and Class by Angela Davis is a necessary read for any person interested in social and racial justice. If you haven't read this book yet.....do it now. It will challenge you, it will infuriate you, and it will make you a better intersect...

    A must read, especially for white feminists. It's incredibly comprehensive and her writing is engaging and accessible. It's also frustratingly timely, as so many of the issues brought up within the book are still issues our social justice movements face today. ...

    Why I read this book: Angela Davis is a pioneer in terms of black liberation and gender equality. I have always admired and appreciated her writing and her being. Content: 1/1 It?s important for readers to understand that this is not just a book about women, race and class. It ...

    As timeless today as it was in 1983, Women, Race, and Class by Angela Davis is a necessary read for any person interested in social and racial justice. If you haven't read this book yet.....do it now. It will challenge you, it will infuriate you, and it will make you a better intersect...

    A must read, especially for white feminists. It's incredibly comprehensive and her writing is engaging and accessible. It's also frustratingly timely, as so many of the issues brought up within the book are still issues our social justice movements face today. ...

    http://www.neapoulain.com/2017/12/tod... Bueno, yo sé que a mucha gente no le gusta que le digan que deben leer libros. Muy bien. En realidad no deben leerlo en todos los casos, pero creo que si son feministas o quieren ver el feminismo con una perspectiva de clase, este libro es u...

    I loved this book! I learned a lot from this book that I think I would not have learned otherwise. She details the roles of Black women in the black community from slavery up through the modern era. The role of black women as equals to their men in regards to work during the time of sl...

    I remember borrowing this book from the public library on Fordham Road when I was 15....it was the first book I ever took out and I never returned it. I poured over its pages. This turned me on to feminist research and critical theory in a way I can't full express. At 15 I knew the lif...

    A few months ago I started on a quest to educate myself about feminism, especially as it relates to black women. As a result, my GoodReads queue has become filled with books on beauty, books written by authors like Alice Walker and even couple books on hip-hop feminism. I've recently b...

    As timeless today as it was in 1983, Women, Race, and Class by Angela Davis is a necessary read for any person interested in social and racial justice. If you haven't read this book yet.....do it now. It will challenge you, it will infuriate you, and it will make you a better intersect...

    A must read, especially for white feminists. It's incredibly comprehensive and her writing is engaging and accessible. It's also frustratingly timely, as so many of the issues brought up within the book are still issues our social justice movements face today. ...

    Uma leitura essencial para esses tempos. ...

    Angela Davis is pretty awesome. I didn?t really know what to expect going into it, and it?s basically a historical examination of the intersection of struggles against sexism, racism, and classism. Or, more accurately, against slavery and lynching, against capitalism, and for woman...

    I can't believe how readable this book is, considering how dense it also is in historical detail. The research that went into it must be astounding, but it flows in most places like a conversation with a (really well-informed) friend. Along with many subjects I am familiar with, I was ...

    Why I read this book: Angela Davis is a pioneer in terms of black liberation and gender equality. I have always admired and appreciated her writing and her being. Content: 1/1 It?s important for readers to understand that this is not just a book about women, race and class. It ...

    I may at some point take the time to write something better than this, but I also might not. If I do, it will do more justice to this book than what I am currently offering. If I do not, then this short little paragraph will have to do. Women, Race, and Class is a classic work. It i...

    I give this book 4.5 stars which rounds up to 5. I read this book for my Women in Politics class. This book's central focus is intersectional feminism. It highlights how gender, race, and class factor into inequality. This book started off incredibly strong, but lost its way a ...

    Troublant de lire aujourd'hui ce que Davis a écrit en 1983: Some of the most flagrant symptoms of social deterioration are acknowledged as serious problems only when they have assumed such epidemic proportions that they appear to defy solution. Rape is a case in point. In the United ...

    Masterful overview of America's women's movement from pre-Civil War to the end of the 1970's, especially concerning the experiences and oppressions of Black women and girls. You likely didn't learn this stuff in school. My only gripe is that Davis assumes we understand her vision of so...

    Livro absolutamente necessário para entender a importância da interseccionalidade para a discussão de problemas e políticas públicas. O texto de Davis é interseccional em sua escrita, o que facilita muito a leitura. Os temas trabalhados são profundos e muito relevantes. Recomend...
