Abstract :

Feminism developed as a result of the efforts of white middle-class women to gain a sense of equality. Given its predominantly white lineage, feminism never fully encompassed the needs of minority women, especially Afro-American ones. In light of this limitation, a new feminism movement has been constructed. Called multiracial feminism, it seeks to present new universal concepts about women's equality.
