White-dominated feminist groups were hard-pressed to build racially diverse organizations in the 1970s. To understand this lack of diversity and understanding across racial lines, this paper examines the activities of three Black women’s activist organizations during the era of the campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment. This paper urges white-dominated feminist organizations to use an intersectional approach as they continue to develop their feminism.
