In this work, Anne Stefani focuses on a particular group of white southerners--the minority of white women who lived in a white supremacist society but who rejected the segregationist system and contributed to its demise. She argues that the double identity of these white southern women as both "oppressors" and "victims" forced them to confront their native culture, developing a unique form of racial activism through which they rebelled against their own culture while conforming to southern standards of respectability.
