Abolition Feminisms: Organizing, Survival, and Transformative Practice
Edited by Alisa Bierria, Jakeya Caruthers & Brooke Lober
Foreword by dean Spade
This groundbreaking anthology engages the theme of abolition feminisms, a political tradition grounded in radical anti-violence organizing, Black feminist and feminist of color rebellion, survivor knowledge production, strategies devised inside and across prison walls, and a full, fierce refusal of race-gender pathology and punitive control. This analysis disrupts the politics of carceral feminism as conversations about the ramifications of the prison-industrial complex continue.
