This chapter makes strong claims for identity in the context of white women seeking to become agents of social change. It argues that anti-oppression work requires learning the real force as well as the falsity of binary logics. Spivak's analysis of the soulmaking process for colonized and colonizing women is an invaluable tool to aid in the liberation of white women from their gendered oppression and addiction to unearned privilege.

Keywords:   Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, identity, white women, social change, anti-oppression, soulmaking, binary logics
