Radical Feminist Book Announcement

In the 2020s, there is a rebirth of radical feminist theory and activism. It’s time to publish a new collection that brings together the best in contemporary radical feminist thought.
Announcing: Spinning and Weaving: Radical Feminism for the 21st Century. Tidal Time Press, the publisher of Female Erasure, will publish this collection, edited by U.S. radical feminist theorist and activist Elizabeth Miller, in March 2021.
 
Spinning and Weaving seeks to raise up the voices of women around the world writing or creating from a radical feminist perspective, including scholars, journalists, activists, organizers, bloggers, writers, poets, artists, and independent thinkers. The collection especially seeks to amplify the voices of Women of Color, as they are the most likely to be silenced, marginalized, or ignored, and their experience denied or minimized.
The collection include chapters on many areas of contemporary radical feminism, including foundational radical feminist theory; the intersection of sex, race, and other axes of oppression; lesbian feminism; the environment; women’s sexuality; political activism; feminist organizing; women-only spaces; pornography; prostitution; gender ideology; and many other topics of interest and import to radical feminist theory and practice.
FIST’s co-founder Ann Menasche has two chapters in the book. Check out the book website, https://spinningandweaving.org/, to see the full Table of Contents for the book.
 
Spinning and Weaving’s Contributing Editor, Elizabeth Miller, is a radical feminist activist who runs the Chicago Feminist Salon and co-organized the Women in Media Conference, a radical feminist conference held in Chicago in 2018. Among other projects, she is currently working on organizing two other radical feminist conferences in the U.S., and runs the Radical Feminism Resources community on Facebook.
