“Women of color have been at the center and forefront of some of the most urgent political struggles for freedom in the United States. They have pioneered, through practice and theory, models of collective, intersectional feminism that have demanded more radical and more just ways of living, being, and acting. Feminisms in Motion is a welcome and urgent anthology that foregrounds the exciting and compelling work of these activists and writers.” —Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize- winning author of The Sympathizer

From 2007 to 2017, a small, Los Angeles-based magazine called make/shift published some of the most inspiring feminist writers of the decade, articulating ideas from the grassroots and amplifying feminist voices on immigration, state violence, climate change, and other issues. These writings contributed to the long and rich traditions of women-of-color-centered feminisms, which acknowledge all systems of power as connected, and understand that ending one form of violence demands the transformation of society on multiple fronts.

Feminisms in Motion highlights ten years of intersectional feminist thought and action, featuring authors like Alexis Pauline Gumbs, adrienne maree brown, and Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, among many others.

Jessica Hoffmann is a writer, editor, and museum administrator whose writings have appeared in publications like Bitch, ColorLines, and SFAQ.

Daria Yudacufski is the executive director of Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative at the University of Southern California.
