Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Studies black feminist approaches to political science and African American women as political actors.

In Black Feminist Voices in Politics, Evelyn M. Simien charts a course for black women’s studies in political science. Examining the simultaneous effects of race and gender on political behavior, Simien uses a national telephone survey sample of the adult African American population to discover the extent to which black women and men support black feminist tenets. At the heart of this book are answers to such questions as: How does the absence of black feminist voices impair our understanding of group consciousness? What factors make individuals more or less likely to adopt black feminist views? Are men just as likely as women to support black feminist tenets? Simien analyzes the survey data, responds to limitations of existing research, and addresses critical questions that many black academics, intellectuals, and activists have devoted significant energy to debating without much empirical evidence.

“The detailed findings, statistical analyses, and interpretations provide a rich source of information for scholars and activists … Black Feminist Voices in Politics makes a valuable contribution to the fields of political science and feminist studies.” — Gender & Society

“…[this book] lays the groundwork for the intellectual advancement of political science through the examination of black women’s studies as separate research and teaching fields.” — Political Science Quarterly

“Recommend[ed] … to anyone interested in the politics of race and gender in America today. Simien’s … integration of normative theory with quantitative analysis is pathbreaking; and her operational definition of black feminist consciousness will prove to be of great use to scholars.” — Perspectives on Politics

“In Black Feminist Voices in Politics, Evelyn Simien accomplishes a considerable feat: she brings the notoriously conservative discipline of political science face to face with black feminist political thought.” — Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society

“For those who want a brief introduction to the various black women Simien profiles, or for those who need a jumping-off point for research on black feminism and black political participation, this is the book for you.” — Ms. Magazine

“With this work, Evelyn Simien strengthens the foundation for a deeper understanding of the complexity of U.S. political culture, and the often marginalized participants who expand democratic power.” — Joy James, editor of The New Abolitionists: (Neo)Slave Narratives and Contemporary Prison Writings

Evelyn M. Simien is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Connecticut.
