Prose: non-fiction, Society

This latest Seal Studies title explores a new discourse of feminism within ethnic studies

In this Seal Studies title, author and professor Maythee Rojas offers a look at the intricate crossroads of being a woman of colour. Women of colour and Feminism tackles the question of how women of colour experience feminism, and how race and socioeconomics can alter this experience. Rojas explores the feminist woman of colour's identity and how it relates to mainstream culture and feminism. Featuring profiles of historical women of colour (including Hottentot Venus, Josefa Loaiza, and Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash), a discussion of the arts, and a vision for developing a feminist movement built on love and community healing, Rojas examines the intersectional nature of being a woman of colour and a feminist. Covering a range of topics, including sexuality, gender politics, violence, stereotypes, and reproductive rights, Women of colour and Feminism offers a far-reaching view of this multilayered identity. This powerful study strives to rewrite race and feminism, encouraging women to take back the body" in a world of new activism. Women of colour and Feminism encourages a broad conversation about race, class, and gender and creates a discourse that brings together feminism and racial justice movements.
