"Many women are reluctant to advocate feminism because they are uncertain about the meaning of the term.Other women from exploited and oppressed ethnic groups dismiss the term because the do not wish to be perceived as supporting a racist movement; feminism is often equated with white women’s rights efforts. Large numbers of women see feminism as synonymous with lesbianism; their homophobia leads them to reject association with any group identified as pro-lesbian. Some women fear the word “feminism” because they shun identification with any political movement, especially one perceived as radical.

It is this term’s positive political significance and power that we must now struggle to recover and maintain."
