Outspoken socialist feminists, most of whom are white women, have emphasised class but they have not been effective in changing attitudes towards class in feminist movement. Despite their support of socialism, their values, behaviours and lifestyles continue to be shaped by privilege. They have not developed collective strategies to convince bourgeois women who have no radical political perspective that eliminating class oppression is crucial to efforts to end sexist oppression. They have not worked hard to organise with the poor and working class women who may not identify as socialists but do identify with the need for redistribution of wealth in the United States. They have not worked to raise the consciousness of women collectively. Much of their energy has been spent addressing the white male left, discussing the connections between Marxism and feminism, or explaining to other feminist activists that socialist feminism is the best strategy for the revolution.
