In recent years, Sisterhood as slogan, motto and rallying cry no longer evokes the spirit of power in unity. Some feminists now seem to feel that unity among women is impossible given our differences. Abandoning the idea of Sisterhood as an expression of political solidarity weakens and diminishes feminist movement. The emphasis on Sisterhood was often seen as the emotional appeal masking the opportunism of manipulative bourgeois white women. It was seen as a cover-up hiding the fact that many women exploit and oppress other women. Racist socialization teaches bourgeois white women to think they are necessarily more capable of leading masses of women than other groups of women. Ironically, the women who were most eager to be seen as "victims", who overwhelmingly stressed the role of victim, were more privileged and powerful than the vast majority of women in their society.
