The manifestos used in She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry are as follows:

Sexual Politics, Kate Millet, 1968:

There are a vast number of women who are beginning to wake out of the long sleep that is known as cooperation in one’s own oppression and self-denigration, and they are banding together to make the beginnings of a new and massive women's movement in America and in the world. To establish true equality between the sexes, to break the old machine of sexual politics and to replace it with a more human and civilized world for both sexes, and to end the present system’s oppression of men as well as women.

Poor Black Women, Patricia Robinson and Black Sisters (The Mount Vernon Group), 1968:

Dear brothers:

Poor black women decide for themselves whether to have a baby or not have a baby. Black women are being asked by militant black brothers not to practice birth control because it’s a form of whitey committing genocide on black people. Well, true enough. But black women in the United States have to fight back out of our own experience of oppression and having too many babies stops us from teaching them the truth, from supporting our children, and from stopping the brainwashing, as you say. And fighting black men who still want to use and exploit us.

From No More Fun and Games, Roxane Dunbar, 1971:

I am a revolutionary. I am a feminist. I don’t know if I am a revolutionary feminist or a feminist revolutionary. I think I am a female revolutionary, and a feminist. The fact is that I am a woman, greatly limited by that fact and conscious of my position as woman, committed to the liberation of all women. There is no possibility for me to be liberated except that all women be liberated, and that means power and control on a political-economic level, not some personal, individual freedom from restrictions or personal fame. Having had nothing, I will not settle for crumbs.
