In this sense, there is typically an important formal distinction to be drawn between a feminism that agitates for the expansion of women’s rights by engaging in a politics of demand versus one that seeks to leverage the repressive apparatuses of the state in order to alter or eliminate the kind of behavior that disproportionately harms the interests of women (whether these happen to be men or women themselves). Thus, the former aims primarily to increase and enhance positive liberties for women while the latter acts to secure the sanctity of a certain set of negative liberties that are regarded as foundational to the sovereignty of the individual.Full article:

Baldwin & Lorde on the American Dream in Essence (1984)
- James Baldwin: Du Bois believed in the American dream. So did Martin. So did Malcolm. So do I. So do you. That's why we're sitting here.
- Audre Lorde: I don't, honey. I'm sorry, I just can't let that go past. Deep, deep, deep down I know that dream was never mine. And I wept and I cried and I fought and I stormed, but I just knew it. I was Black. I was female. And I was out—out—by any construct wherever the power lay. So if I had to claw myself insane, if I lived I was going to have to do it alone. Nobody was dreaming about me. Nobody was even studying me except as something to wipe out.
- Baldwin, James, and Audre Lorde. "A Conversation Between James Baldwin and Audre Lorde." Essence Dec. 1984. Print. 72-73.
