More About Women of Color and Feminism by Maythee Rojas
 
 
 
Overview
In this Seal Studies title, author and professor Maythee Rojas offers a look at the intricate crossroads of being a woman of color. "Women of Color and Feminism" tackles the question of how women of color experience feminism, and how race and socioeconomics can alter this experience. Rojas explores the feminist woman of color s identity and how it relates to mainstream culture and feminism. Featuring profiles of historical women of color (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 color and a feminist. Covering a range of topics, including sexuality, gender politics, violence, stereotypes, and reproductive rights, "Women of Color 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 Color and Feminism" encourages a broad conversation about race, class, and gender and creates a discourse that brings together feminism and racial justice movements.
