The Woman Question

The Woman Question

(p.158) Chapter Six The Woman Question
A Generation Divided

Rebecca E. Klatch

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the divisions within both SDS and YAF over “the woman question,” over whether women were first- or second-class citizens. It explains that despite objective evidence of male dominance in each group, there was a split among women in each group as to their subjective perceptions of discrimination. The chapter argues that these differences were due primarily to organizational factors and to the availability of a language to identify inequality.

Keywords:   SDS, YAF, woman question, first-class citizens, second-class citizens, male dominance, women, language, inequality, discrimination
