The 1960s were a glorious time when every preconceived notion in American society was being questioned. The status of women quickly came under fire. The Women's Movement fought for equality in the workplace and in the home, and for the woman's right to choose. Some sectors of the white women's movement defined men as the enemy. For Third World women and other white women, our enemy was defined much more broadly as the fundamental economic and political system in this country that gave rise to racism and sexism.
