Abstract

The white female participant in the civil rights movement in the South is subject to unique and unanticipated stresses. Although she is prepared for a negative reaction on the part of the local white community, the ambivalence with which she is received by local Negroes and co-workers may lead to frustration and confusion. Some of these women are able to cope effectively with their frustrations; others, aggravated by personal fantasies about their mission in civil rights, succumb to the pressures upon them and find it necessary to return home.
