Lívia De Souza Lima & Edith Otero Quezada 
Feminisms in Movement 
Theories and Practices from the Americas

Feminist organizing and theorizing from the Americas have provided some of the most innovative, visible, and all-encompassing spaces of resistance against sexism and sexualised violence, misogyny, racism, homo- and transphobia, coloniality, extractivism, climate change, and neoliberal capitalist exploitation. Current feminist movements address different axes of oppression and thereby represent, practice, and theorize a truly »intersectional« politics. The contributors bring together a wide variety of perspectives, ranging from Black and decolonial feminist voices, LGBTQI/queer perspectives to ecofeminist approaches and indigenous women’s mobilizations to inspire future feminist practices and inform social and cohabitation projects.
