by Lola Olufemi
Plastered over t-shirts and tote bags, the word 'feminist' has entered the mainstream and is fast becoming a popular slogan for our generation. But feminism isn't a commodity up for purchase; it's a weapon for fighting against injustice. This revolutionary book reclaims feminism from consumerism through exploring state violence against women, reproductive justice, transmisogyny, sex work, gendered Islamophobia and much more, showing that the struggle for gendered liberation is a struggle for justice, one that can transform the world for everybody.
Part of Pluto Press's Outspoken series.
"Feminism, Interrupted is a lucid and passionate call to action by one of our most dynamic young feminists. Olufemi's manifesto is for a truly radical feminism that liberates us all. If you call yourself a feminist, you need to read this book" - Alison Phipps, author of Me, Not You: The Trouble with Mainstream Feminism
"Lola offers a crucial vision that imagines beyond racist, capitalist solutions to oppression... the necessity of this book cannot be overstated for those who call themselves feminists and those who eschew feminism as it presents itself" - Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan
