A long and ongoing challenge for social justice movements has been how to address difference. Traditional strategies have often emphasized universalizing messages and common identities as means of facilitating collective action. Feminist movements, gay liberation movements, racial justice movements, and even labour movements, have all focused predominantly on respective singular dimensions of oppression. Each has called on diverse groups of people to mobilize, but without necessarily acknowledging or grappling with other relevant dimensions of identity and oppression. While focusing on commonality can be an effective means of mobilization, universalist messages can also obscure difference and can serve to exclude and marginalize groups in already precarious positions. Scholars and activists, particularly those located at the intersection of these movements, have long advocated for more inclusive approaches that acknowledge the significance and complexity of different social locations, with mixed success. Gender Mobilizations and Intersectional Challenges provides a much needed intersectional analysis of social movements in Europe and North America. With an emphasis on gendered mobilization, it looks at movements traditionally understood and/or classified as singularly gendered as well as those organized around other dimensions of identity and oppression or at the intersection of multiple dimensions. This comparative study of movements allows for a better understanding of the need for as well as the challenges

Gendered Mobilizations and Intersectional Challenges is essential reading, from the comprehensive theoretical overview in the introduction, to the diverse and insightful case studies presented. Making intersectionality much more than a fashionable word, this collection examines the processes and practices that spur or block collaborative social movement strategies across many differences of status, political power and identity in the US and Europe. This book is perfectly timed to enhance activists' and scholars' appreciation of why doing intersectional movement work is essential to support these democracies in the face of growing attacks on inclusion and equality. -- Myra Marx Ferree, Alice H. Cook Professor of Sociology (emerita), University of Wisconsin-Madison This important volume-the first of its kind-brings into focus the challenges and opportunities of intersectional practices within gendered movements, and in a broad range of contemporary social movements, from Occupy, to Solidarity with refugees and BlackLivesMatter. Gendered Mobilizations and Intersectional Challenges is a crucial contribution for our understanding of intersectionality, that will help both scholars and activists identify and understand a plurality of intersectional voices. -- Eleonore Lepinard, Associate Professor, Centre for Gender Studies, University of Lausanne After long debates about intersectionality and transversal politics, this is an important and timely book. It represents forms of inclusive feminist activism in the face of exclusionary intersectional policies by right-wing populist actors and critically weighs the potential of these social justice movements. The comparative country focus and the systematic perspective on gendered social justice movements makes the volume a fundamentally important contribution to understanding current feminist movements as well as counter-movements against right-wing politics. -- Birgit Sauer, Professor of Political Science, University of Vienna This book importantly enhances existing scholarship on gendered movements. It does so by jointly studying feminist and women's movements with mobilizations that are gendered but have another dominant focus (on race or sexuality), or that act at the intersections. It also presents a much needed theoretical and methodological framework for applying intersectionality theory to the study of social movements. -- Karen Celis, Research Professor, Department of Political Science, Vrije Universiteit Brussel Drawing on a wide range of European and North American cases, this urgently needed volume asks: what does social movement intersectionality look like, when is it employed, how, and to what end? The book tackles some of the biggest challenges facing social movements today, which find themselves under pressure from the economy, a perceived immigration crisis, and political forces that are tearing communities apart. This important book allows for new ways of thinking about how to build alliances across social identities in trying times. -- Aili Mari Tripp, Wangari Maathai Professor of Political Science & Gender and Women's Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison Theorizing intersectionality as a social movement ethic and political practice as well as a research paradigm, this impressive collection illuminates dimensions of power obscured in mainstream political science and addresses persistent dilemmas that haunt efforts to recognize complex vectors of marginalization while attempting to mobilize coalitions for progressive political transformation. -- Mary Hawkesworth, Distinguished Professor, Political Science and Women's & Gender Studies, Rutgers University
