o Blackness is highly visible, but also invisible by lack of acknowledgement of
racism.
“The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House”
Reform vs. Radical approach
“What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that
same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and
allowable” (110-11)
Reform vs. radical approach
o We want to completely change the patriarchal system
o Womencentric is something radical that lorde discusses in her articles
o Differences between women should be seen as a sight of creativity (page 110-
112)
“Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference”
Difference:
“Certainly there are very real differences between us of race, age, and sex. But it is not those
differences between us that are separating us. It is rather our refusal to recognize those
differences, and to examine the distortions which result from our misnaming them and their
effects upon human behaviour and expectation” (115)
Compromise:
“For white women there is a wider range of pretended choices and rewards for identifying with
patriarchal power and its tools” (118-19)
