I found the chapters on reproductive justice, sex work, and transmisogyny to be most interesting because they haven’t been covered as much in the other feminist texts I’ve read. Cudownie rozprawia się też z liberalnym (mainstreamowym czy też konsumpcyjnym) feminizmem, pokazując, jak bardzo wyklucza on te grupy, które feminizmu najbardziej potrzebują i którym głos jest zabierany.

There are many more complicated demands to be made: mainstream movements will always defeat their own purpose as long as they consider the law as the sole indicator of progress.Dato che sto esaurendo lo spazio terminerò dicendo che Lola Olufemi affronta molti atri temi, dal cibo alla cultura del corpo, dalla politica nell'arte al genere e ai limiti del binarismo occidentale [TERF demolite in tre pagine e paragonate ai movimenti di estrema destra]. Olufemi jako czarna feministka świetnie pokazuje, jak feminizm wpisuje się w takie tematy jak islamofobia, imigracja czy więziennictwo. Lola Olufemi, Jade Bentil and Gail Lewis discuss black feminism and other themes from the new book, ‘Feminism, Interrupted’. Gli argomenti vengono affrontati da diversi punti di vista e con diverse chiavi di lettura (privilegio di genere, di etnia, di classe) e l'autrice non ha paura di mettere in discussione il suo stesso movimento quando è necessario.

The introduction failed to make me understand what the aim of the book was, but it soon became clear that the author would be making the case for feminism, going through some of the most common current divides in the movement.At the end there’s a great list of further reading based on the topics she discussed, including a list of organisations and zines that also look interesting. Olufemi envisages a living, breathing practice of feminism that is anticapitalist, transnational, and collective. Sono appena 170 pagine, ma sembrano di più (e lo dico in senso super positivo) per il numero di argomenti trattati e la chiarezza con cui vengono espressi. Olufemi centres radical feminist efforts to move global society towards a collective, non-authoritarian position in which national boundaries are dropped, resources are shared, and people come together in solidarity rather than in a dog-eat-dog scramble for dominance. She appears didactic, naive and arrogant in her dismissal of years of activism thinking and hard work by many people.

Kendall cites as an example the fact that concern about rape culture in the US focuses on the date rape of suburban teens, and not the much higher rate of sexual assault faced by, for instance, indigenous and Alaskan women. This book is a manifesto for radical feminism and its capacity to make change in the world at all levels.When feminism is hijacked by the elites and feminist discourse seeps into the upper echelons of society, it is those with power that set the feminist agenda. Disampaikan oleh perempuan kulit berwarna, maka jangan kaget apabila menemukan beberapa tulisannya terkesan "galak" atau membuat kita tidak nyaman (karena bisa saja kita terlalu sering terpapar oleh suara feminis kulit putih). The vigorous debates in and around feminism and feminist praxis since the later 2000s have produced some of the most challenging political engagements with contemporary social and cultural life; in this they are paralleled by the more recent growing trends in anti-racist activism and action and by the growth of decolonial praxis in the same period. I don’t see how it’s not contradictory to advocate for dismantling oppressive systems and then promote Marxist theory in the exact same breath, but whatever. She has written and spoken at numerous events about feminism and decolonisation across the country, and was a member of the NUS Women’s Campaign and NUS National Executive Committee.
