Changing Woman: A History of Racial Ethnic Women in Modern America
While great strides have been made in documenting discrimination against women in America, our awareness of discrimination is due in large part to the efforts of a feminist movement dominated by middle-class white women, and is skewed to their experiences. Yet discrimination against racial ethnic women is in fact dramatically different--more complex and more widespread--and without a window into the lives of racial ethnic women our understanding of the full extent of discrimination against all women in America will be woefully inadequate. Now, in this illuminating volume, Karen Anderson offers the first book to examine the lives of women in the three main ethnic groups in the United States--Native American, Mexican American, and African American women--revealing the many ways in which these groups have suffered oppression, and the profound effects it has had on their lives.
Here is a thought-provoking examination of the history of racial ethnic women, one which provides not only insight into their lives, but also a broader perception of the history, politics, and culture of the United States. For instance, Anderson examines the clash between Native American tribes and the U.S. government (particularly in the plains and in the West) and shows how the forced acculturation of Indian women caused the abandonment of traditional cultural values and roles (in many tribes, women held positions of power which they had to relinquish), subordination to and economic dependence on their husbands, and the loss of meaningful authority over their children. Ultimately, Indian women were forced into the labor market, the extended family was destroyed, and tribes were dispersed from the reservation and into the mainstream--all of which dramatically altered the woman's place in white society and within their own tribes. The book examines Mexican-American women, revealing that since U.S. job recruiters in Mexico have historically focused mostly on low-wage male workers, Mexicans have constituted a disproportionate number of the illegals entering the states, placing them in a highly vulnerable position. And even though Mexican-American women have in many instances achieved a measure of economic success, in their families they are still subject to constraints on their social and political autonomy at the hands of their husbands. And finally, Anderson cites a wealth of evidence to demonstrate that, in the years since World War II, African-American women have experienced dramatic changes in their social positions and political roles, and that the migration to large urban areas in the North simply heightened the conflict between homemaker and breadwinner already thrust upon them.
Changing Woman provides the first history of women within each racial ethnic group, tracing the meager progress they have made right up to the present. Indeed, Anderson concludes that while white middle-class women have made strides toward liberation from male domination, women of color have not yet found, in feminism, any political remedy to their problems.
Red Cross Whiting Veterans 002
Red Cross Honors Two War Veterans in Moving Ceremony. Petty Officers from the Lakehurst Naval Base brought out a stunning color guard to begin the opening ceremonies in Whiting yesterday honoring two important veterans from our community. AristaCare at Whiting, a leader in Sub Acute rehab, partnered with “America’s Favorite Charity” The American Red Cross to honor Frank Barone and Marion Ariemma for their outstanding service. Prompted by the upcoming November 11th celebration of Veterans Day, the community-oriented organizations came together to show gratitude to this-ever dwindling “greatest generation”. The community of Whiting came out in droves on what was a stunning fall day to take a moment, reflect and recognize the young men and women who have now grown up to become grandparents and great grandparents, who risked their lives to ensure and preserve the freedoms that we all enjoy today. Our veterans have dedicated their talent and years, and many times - even their lives for values that we hold so dear. In recognizing veterans as a whole we too often fall short of recognizing the individual and personal sacrifices. Victoria McDougal, Spokesperson for the American Red Cross, said, “AristaCare and the Red Cross created an atmosphere where our community can come together and take a moment to respect those that have sacrificed so much for our freedom.” Honored for their outstanding personal contributions two local veterans were recognized: Frank Barone, a Manchester resident was brought to the podium by Donald Czekanski, Chairman of the Mayors Veterans Committee, to honor his long time friend. Frank is a well accomplished US Army Veteran awarded with both silver and bronze stars, two purple hearts, the combat infantry badge, and a presidential unit citation. The spotlight was shared by Marion Ariemma, a US Navy nurse who dedicated her service educating core men to be prepared to act in medical necessity on the front lines. So many times the contribution of women has been camouflaged behind the scenes and therefore the impact in war is overshadowed, it was refreshing to see these unsung heroines honored. Nikki Troisi, Director of Community Relations for AristaCare, said, “As organizations involved in healthcare and disaster relief AristaCare and the American Red Cross have a special appreciation for the contribution that veteran nurses have made over the years.” Guest Speaker Mayor Michael Fressola of Manchester Township delivered a moving speech that brought many in the crowd to tears. He read a poem about a mothers failed attempt to answer her child’s question, “Mommy what is a veteran?” The Poem conveyed a strong message that there are no words that would capture the true picture of these heroes. The poem ended with the following line, “For the air we breathe and life itself we owe thanks to these veterans.” Mayor Michael Fressola commended AristaCare and the American Red Cross for hosting this event as well as they great things they do serving the local residents. Renee Pruzansky Senior Vice President of AristaCare expressed that “Of all the communities that AristaCare is privileged to serve, Whiting has touched us the most. Because of its unique network of seniors and veterans it is a community who takes care of one another. AristaCare feels humbled to be a part of such a noble community and we are compelled to be involved and contribute in any way we can.” The moving ceremony was concluded with the singing of God Bless America. Many members of the community stayed into the afternoon for a sharing war stories and their experiences over a canteen style lunch, making for a perfect day.
