"Black women tend to focus on practical gender needs. As one woman said to me, 'Why are feminists concerned with getting out of the kitchen? Most women are concerned with getting a kitchen."

"Liberal representation holds that as long as citizens are free to cast their votes, then those outcomes are fair, whatever they happen to be....

Melissa Williams
