The editors and contributors to Color of Violence ask: What would it take to end violence against women of color? Presenting the fierce and vital writing of organizers, lawyers, scholars, poets, and policy makers, Color of Violence radically repositions the antiviolence movement by putting women of color at its center. The contributors shift the focus from domestic violence and sexual assault and map innovative strategies of movement building and resistance used by women of color around the world. The volume's thirty pieces-which include poems, short essays, position papers, letters, and personal reflections-cover violence against women of color in its myriad forms, manifestations, and settings, while identifying the links between gender, militarism, reproductive and economic violence, prisons and policing, colonialism, and war. At a time of heightened state surveillance and repression of people of color, Color of Violence is an essential intervention. Contributors.

Recensioner i media

"Anyone who's complacent about the successes of the feminist movement should dip into this collection . . . about the women left behind, left out, or simply forgotten." * Publishers Weekly * "A powerful guide for activists, educators, community organizers, and anyone asking the question, 'What would it take to end violence against women of color?'" * WATER * "Color of Violence . . . boldly challenges conventional feminist thought and contemporary antiviolence initiatives. . . . [Its] contributors reveal necessary truths about the failures of traditional social service and criminal justice-oriented approaches to ending violence against women. . . . INCITE! challenges us to look beyond the conventional doctrine on violence against women that has influenced and sometimes hindered contemporary antiviolence organizing to establish a new framework for activism that acknowledges and incorporates our diverse, sometimes divergent, perspectives as women of color." -- Keidra Chaney * Bitch * "This anthology would serve as an invaluable classroom source on Third Wave feminism, antiracist social movements, and social justice movements in the United States in the twenty-first century." -- Sharmila Rudrappa * Journal of American Ethnic History * "These compelling essays are written by women who bring passion, energy, anger, and insight to an injustice that has taken a back seat to other social justice issues: violence perpetrated on women of color. The writings are impressively comprehensive in their global scope, historical insight, and unyielding passion. The book reminds readers that the antiviolence movement, although perhaps once at risk of fading, remains profoundly important, especially to women, and most especially to women of color. . . . These bold women occasionally shame, always inform, and often challenge readers to finish the book and embark on the cause of finally ending the violence that women of color have too long endured." -- D. A. Mathews * Choice * "A deeply thoughtful contribution to radical anti-violence activism . . . Colors of Violence engages a complex and diverse dialogue about forms of violence, resistance, and movement building. . . . [It] does a skilled job of instigating a thoughtful and complex discussion on a topic that has not received adequate attention even among radicals." -- Chloe Tribich * Against the Current * "Consistently, the articles discuss the importance of and strategies around movement-building among communities of color, specifically radical women of color, in their shared struggles for liberation. They also speak to a great need for activists to learn about intersecting forms of oppression that may be undervalued or ignored. . . . And lest we forget, the book does not stand alone. The women of Color of Violence: The INCITE! Anthology are not only writers, speakers, poets, and academics but also activists, concerned with bringing about the change that they write. We can be part of their liberation, and our own, by listening to their voices." -- Katie Seitz * Off Our Backs * "Every essay in this collection reveals another critical aspect of being a woman of color in the United States today. . . . It is an excellent starting point for understanding some of the issues today for women of color actively working for social change." -- Rachel Pepper * Curve * "Color of Violence . . . challenges every reader to recognize and fight the subtle and not so subtle forms of violence that manifests and is inflicted upon women of color." -- Vernetta K. Williams * Callaloo *
