Wow, what an ugly generalization. For every “complicit” white woman there is at least one who is battling against oppressive structures. I understand we’re a very convenient scapegoat for anything that goes wrong, but there are so many of us you can’t talk about us all as a monolith. I deny any kinship or association with women who voted for Trump or who block women’s right to abortion. I will fight them tooth and nail my entire life as my enemy.

And Susan B. Anthony was an abolitionist! You took her statement out of context. She was completely for black suffrage. She went around the country campaigning for voting rights and education for both black people and women. Her point was that she wasn’t *just* going to campaign for black men to have the vote and let women of all colors get left out in the cold. You really have to contort logic hard to smear her in this way.
