Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: London Pluto Press 2019Description: ix, 310 p.: ill. Includes references and index.ISBN: 9780745339474.Subject(s): Europe | Feminism | Womanism | Intersectionality - Sociology | United StatesDDC classification: 305.4889604 Summary: This book brings together activists, artists, and scholars of color to show how Black feminism and Afrofeminism are being practiced in Europe today, exploring their different social positions in various countries, and how they organize and mobilize to imagine a Black feminist Europe. Deeply aware that they are constructed as 'Others' living in a racialized and hierarchical continent, the contributors explore gender, class, sexuality and legal status to show that they are both invisible - presumed to be absent from and irrelevant to European societies - and hyper-visible - assumed to be passive and sexualized, angry and irrational. Through imagining a future outside the neocolonial frames and practices of contemporary Europe, this book explores a variety of critical spaces including motherhood and the home, friendships and intimate relationships, activism and community, and literature, dance, and film. https://www.plutobooks.com/9780745339474/to-exist-is-to-resist/
