Mothers of Massive Resistance

White Women and the Politics of White Supremacy

Elizabeth Gillespie McRae

  • Addresses the central role white women played in the crafting of white supremacist politics
  • Argues for the feminine roots of modern conservatism, a political movement so often talked about in masculinist terms
  • Looks at the work of maintaining segregration across five decades, not just after Brown v. Board of Education
