Women of Color & Feminism

by Maythee Rojas, PhD Author

An in-depth look at feminism from the perspective of race. Rojas, a Latina from a working class background, draws on primary sources and profiles of diverse women for this scholarly but accessible examination of the complicated meanings, necessity, and impacts of intersectional feminism. Chapters include Definining Identities, Embodied Representations, Social Struggles, and Creative Expressions. Explore feminism from a BIPOC perspective, learn about some incredible artists and activists, and learn to think in new ways about your own identity, ideas, and actions. An excellent book that came out in 2009 and remains deeply relevant—you won't find up-to-date terminology in here, but the smart perspectives, profiles, and histories are even more valuable now than ever.
