Oppression of African-American women in the United States Presented by Institution Section 2: Conflict 1. Political & ideological positions in oppression of African-American women Political oppression in African-American women began as early as 1850 during American Civil War was at its peak. According to a speech made by Sojourner Truth “Ain’t I A Woman?” African-American women were given less privileges and courtesies as compared to white women. The African-American women did not participate in the 1870 elections that involved passing of the 15th Amendment; the elections were discriminative to African American women as African American men were allowed to vote. Total oppression of African American women started to be observed during the 1890s. They underwent poor responses by crime-processing agents towards their interpersonal victimization.
