Daughters of Jefferson, Daughters of Bootblacks is a constructive proposal in feminist ethics from a theological perspective. With empathy, Barbara Andolsen reveals the moral vulnerability of the woman’s movement from its early manifestations in suffrage campaigns to the contemporary feminist theologies of Mary Daly, Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza, and Rosemary Ruether. Professor Andolsen suggests ways that the shape of the women’s movement might be transformed if greater attention were offered to distinctive black feminist perspectives on such issues as rape, work, male/female solidarity, and beauty. She concludes that feminist theology must stress the integral interrelationship of sexism, racism, and economic exploitation.
