Women of the Klan : Foundations of Modern Feminism
This short-read compares the actual and theoretical similarities between the "Invisible Empire" known as the Women's Ku Klux Klan, and modern gynocentrism or feminism. The KKK originated in the Southern United States in 1865, in part, to perpetuate the "chivalry" of the South in favor of women. The gynocentric chauvinism of the Klan, historically, has been identical to the gynocentric exclusivity of modern feminism. The book shows how the women's suffrage movement in the U.S. was really a KKK motivated campaign to dilute the voting power of African-American men conveyed to those men under the Fifteenth Amendment. The book describes early American feminists who promoted racism in order to achieve gains, for women, at the expense of African-Americans struggling after the Civil War. The book is well-documented, with endnotes, with citations to notable works by both men and women authors.
