The Verso Book of Feminism
Revolutionary Words From Four Millennia of RebellionBook - 2020
"An unprecedented collection of feminist voices from four millennia of global history. Throughout written history and across the world, women have protested the restrictions of gender and the limitations placed on women’s bodies and women’s lives … The Verso Book of Feminism chronicles this history of defiance and tracks it around the world as it develops into a multivocal and unabashed force. Global in scope … [this book] shows the breadth of feminist protest and of feminist thinking, moving through the female poets of China’s Tang Dynasty to accounts of indigenous women in the Caribbean resisting Columbus’s expedition, British suffragists militating for the vote to the revolutionary pétroleuses of the 1848 Paris Commune, the first-century Trung sisters who fought for the independence of Nam Viet to women in 1980s Botswana fighting for equal protection under the law, from the erotica of the sixth century and the ninteenth century to radical queer politics in the twentieth and twenty-first"--Provided by publisher.
