Notes:
This is an explosive book of history and cultural criticism that reveals how white feminism has been used as a weapon of white supremacy and patriarchy deployed against black and Indigenous women, and women of colour. Taking us from the slave era, when white women fought in court to keep 'ownership' of their slaves, through the centuries of colonialism, when they offered a soft face for brutal tactics, to the modern workplace and the weaponisation of white women's tears, this book tells a charged story of white women's active participation in campaigns of oppression and offers a long overdue validation of the experiences of women of colour.
