For me, the most interesting

For me, the most interesting thing about the image is the fact that, unlike all the others in Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party," Sojourner Truth, the only black woman out of 1039 women featured, does not get a "vagina plate." When I've thought about feminism in the past, I just assumed a feminist would think of all women equally, regardless of skin color or wealth or any other socially divisive factor, so I was strange for me to realize that that's not necessarily the case. It would be silly and naive to say that anyone is without prejudice entirely, but I still feel awkward when prejudices are revealed. It's sad to me that even within a movement as strong (I feel) as feminism, prejudices still manage to weasel their way in.
