From the Paper:

"Rose Chernin and Ann Moody participated in radical political movements in response to the inequalities and injustices that persons of non-Anglo American descent faced in America. Issues of gender, social class, and racial/ethnic backgrounds played a crucial role in defining the specific types of activism that Chernin and Moody pursued. Specifically, Chernin and Moody's gender and experience with living in segregated societies influenced their sense of justice. For Moody, Negros worked for whites out of economic necessity and for Chernin, the proletariat worked for the wage out of necessity. Both white supremacy and capitalism oppressed their respective constituencies therefore Moody and Chernin worked to correct the injustices and inequalities of the system."
