Seattle’s female civil rights activists have unique stories. As people of color, they battled racial discrimination. As women, they battled sex discrimination. The intersection of these two fights sometimes pitted women of color against those who should have been allies. This slide show explores female activists’ particular experiences in Seattle’s civil rights movements. It features video oral history excerpts from interviews with female activists from different civil rights movements.
