AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Reading Talkin’ up to the White Woman reminded me of an observation that I have often heard expressed by my Indigenous colleagues: feminist scholars feel comfortable with black women they can help—their ‘poor black sisters’—but there is bewilderment and discomfort when those sisters start to assert themselves, especially when the activism is directed at the canons of feminism itself. Aileen MortonRobinson’s book is precisely the kind of thesis that will send paternalistic feminists running for cover.'  (Introduction)
