Interview with Elaine Brown
QUESTION 12
LOUIS MASSIAH:

What were the expectations of women in the party, and was it any different from the expectations of men?

ELAINE BROWN:

No. Um, I don't think we saw ourselves differently in the beginning at least. We thought that we were revolutionaries, um, and we thought that we would, ah, we would, ah, participate in the same level as men. The one thing we did know is that we weren't really, there was really no difference in the beginning at least. At least we thought of ourselves as, as, as the same as the men in terms of our commitment, and in terms of what we had to do. So our expectations were that we really thought, of course, as, as did the men, that, um, that we would introduce, ah, revolution into the United States.
