Feminist Freedom Warriors

Editors: Linda Carty and Chandra Talpade Mohanty

Haymarket Books, 2018

Feminism matters—a feminism that is anchored in decolonizing, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, transnational commitments keeps us alive and gives us hope. And that is what this volume illustrates—that it is the creation of alliances and solidarities across gender, race, class, sexual, and national divides that point the way forward.

Started as a digital archive project, Feminist Freedom Warriors tells the stories of women of color from the Global South, weaving together cross-generational histories of feminist activism across national borders.

These engaging interviews with sister comrades such as Angela Davis, Margo Okazawa-Rey, Himani Bannerji, and more will inform, inspire, and activate the imagination to explore what a just world might look like. Each woman’s story illustrates their lifelong commitment to challenging oppressive practices and forming solidarities across borders to transform unjust structures around the globe.

The book features interviews with activists from movements spanning the last seven decades in the United States, India, Mexico, Palestine, Nigeria, South Africa, and beyond.
