This book is the first archive-based account of the charged debates around race in the women's movement in England during the 'second wave' period. Examining both the white and the Black women's movement through a source base that includes original oral histories and extensive research using feminist periodicals, this book seeks to unpack the historical roots of long-running tensions between Black and white feminists. It gives a broad overview of the activism that both Black and white women were involved in, and examines the Black feminist critique of white feminists as racist, how white feminists reacted to this critique, and asks why the women's movement was so unable to engage with the concerns of Black women. Through doing so, the book speaks to many present day concerns within the women's movement about the politics of race, and indeed the place of identity politics within the left more broadly.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2016

"This insightful history is a must read for all historians of postwar feminism. ... the author sheds light on a relatively neglected topic in feminist historiography: the various emotional cultures of the women's movement. Given the general lack of historical scholarship on feminism in the UK, Thomlinson's narrative of the movement will be foundational for future scholarship. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (D. J. Mattingly, Choice, Vol. 54 (3), November, 2016)
