Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures Summary

Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures by M. Jacqui Alexander

Feminist Geneaologies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures provides a feminist anaylsis of the questions of sexual and gender politics, economic and cultural marginality, and anti-racist and anti-colonial practices both in the "West" and in the "Third World." This collection, edited by Jacqui Alexander and Chandra Talpade Mohanty, charts the underlying theoretical perspectives and organization practices of the different varieties of feminism that take on questions of colonialism, imperialism, and the repressive rule of colonial, post-colonial and advanced capitalist nation-states. It provides a comparative, relational, historically grounded conception of feminist praxis that differs markedly from the liberal pluralist, multicultural understanding that sheapes some of the dominant version of Euro-American feminism. As a whole, the collection poses a unique challenge to the naturalization of gender based in the experiences, histories and practices of Euro-American women.

Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures Reviews

"Feminist Genealogies has a transnational orientation, drawing together essays from places as diverse as a the Philippines, Nigeria, and Jamaica. After reading Feminist Genealogies, one is left with a feeling of hope about the possibility of "democratic futures"..." -- NWSA Journal
"Feminist Genealogies calls upon us to rethink feminist theories and practices within a complex intersectional and transnational framework. In contesting prevailing notions of global feminism, which tend to depart from resistance practices crafted in the West, Alexander and Mohanty have chosen essays that create new and provocative conversations among activist women involved in important transformative political projects in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. These conversations demand that we think deeply about advanced capitalist relations and how they reproduce and are reproduced through forms of domination that are sexualized, gendered, and racialized. This timely collection of essays should stimulate new discussions about feminist political engagement and about feminist organizing practices as ways of envisioning and struggling for democratic futures." -- Angela Y. Davis, University of California Presidential Chair in African American and Feminist Studies
