Mary Ann Weathers
Mary Ann Weathers wrote the essay "An Argument for Black Women’s Liberation as a Revolutionary Force," "one of the pioneering texts" of Black feminism. In it she "challenges the black liberation movement to embrace women's liberation which she hopes would be responsive to the needs of all oppressed people."
The essay was published in Cell 16's No Fun and Games: A Journal of Female Liberation in 1969 as well as in Leslie Tanner's 1970 Voices for Female Liberation, circulated among consciousness-raising groups in New York City in the 1970s, and in other anthologies in the following decades.
