We are planning a Radical Third World Feminists' Anthology: A Woman to Woman
Dialogue of essays by women of color on their perspectives of the feminist movement.
We want to express to all women-and especially white middle-class women—the experiences which divide us as feminists; we want to examine incidents of intolerance,
prejudice, and denial of differences within the feminist movement. We intend to explore these conditions to begin to come to terms with the silence among us and to
eventually dissolve the divisions. We want to create a definition that expands what
"feminist" means to us. Third World women will be the only ones that will edit and
make the selections for this anthology.
Please submit your essays to us by October 15. An ideal length would be 7 to 10
pages double-spaced or 2,000 to 3,000 words, but articles as short as two pages will be
considered. Mail essays and a stamped self-addressed envelope to Gloria Anzaldua, 948
Nee Street, San Francisco, California 94114 or Cher'rie Moraga Lawrence, 2435
Jefferson Avenue, Apt. H, Berkeley, California 94703.
