Feminism as the bulwark against fascism

In this exciting, innovative work, Polish feminist philosopher Ewa Majewska proposes a specifically feminist politics of antifascism. Mixing theoretical discussion with engaging reflections on personal experiences, Majewska proposes what she calls "counterpublics of the common" and "weak resistance," offering an alternative to heroic forms of subjectivity produced by neoliberal capitalism and contemporary fascism.


"Ewa Majewska's lucid and revolutionary statement is absolutely salutary."--Sophie Lewis, author of Full Surrogacy Now

"A significant contribution to some of the most important debates of our time." --Helen Hester, author of Xenofeminism
