anti-working class and anti-black sentiments in the women's movement are interesting-- especially how davis ties them together as explicitly related.
expediency-- interesting that it moved from "women get the vote quicker if we forget about black people" to "white upperclass women are just more capable to vote than... well... anyone else."
"Not nearly as many Black women were confronted with the domestic voif which plagued their white middle-class sisters. Even so, the leadership of the Black club movement did not come from the masses of working women. What set such women apart from the white club leaders was their consciousness of the need to challenge racism. Indeed, their own familiarity with the routine racism of U.S. society linked them far more intimately to their working-class sisters than did the experience of sexism for white women of the middle class."
have any of you read any good books or anything about ida b. wells?
black males as supporters, or at least polite observers of the 1913 suffrage parade-- as opposed to white men. can't be because they are saintly (like how one of the white women suffragists said that women should vote because they are pure), so why?
working women's disinterest in the ballot-- exhaustion or something else?
