Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America

by Melissa V. Harris-Perry

​The representations of stereotypes that women encounter in contemporary American life shames them and shapes their experiences as citizens.

 

In this book, Melissa V. Harris-Perry uses multiple methods of inquiry, including literary analysis, political theory, focus groups, surveys, and experimental research, to understand more deeply women's political and emotional responses to negative images. Sister Citizen explores how women understand themselves as citizens and what they expect from political organizing.
