Freedom for Women

University Press of Florida

This chapter scrutinizes important steps taken by women's liberation in detail. The chapter first discusses the origins of the anonymous SNCC position paper on women. The position paper presented a critique of sexism and recommended that women should confront it collectively. The paper also compared the treatment of women with the racist treatment of blacks by whites. In the year 1965, the U.S. government published a report by Daniel Patrick Moynihan which was commonly known as the Moynihan report. The report striked the most powerful antiwoman and antifeminist blows of the decade. The chapter backlashes the Moynihan report. The chapter tells of how African American women fought the influence of the Moynihan report.
