The Spiritual Tradition of Womanism

It was a specific nationality which discovered the existence of the spiritual tradition of Womanism — the women of African America. The universal truth of Womanism resides in the genuineness of the particular national liberation movements of the women practicing this spiritual tradition. Women from oppressor nations who aspire to Womanism do so as a function of renouncing the privileges and oppressive power of white supremacy, as a function of the internationalism inherent in Womanist spirit. Men who live by Womanist principles are, in their daily life, acting against male supremacy, and for the liberation of humankind.
