Recent years have seen massive feminist mobilizations in virtually every continent, overturning social mores and repressive legislation. In this brilliant and original look at the emerging feminist international, Vernica Gago explores how the women's strike, as both a concept and collective experience, may be transforming the boundaries of politics as we know it. At once a gripping political analysis and a theoretically charged manifesto, Feminist International draws on the author's rich experience with radical movements to enter into ongoing debates in feminist and Marxist theory: from social reproduction and domestic work to the intertwining of financial and gender violence, as well as controversies surrounding the neo-extractivist model of development, the possibilities and limits of left populism, and the ever-vexed nexus of gender-race-class. Gago asks what another theory of power might look like, one premised on our desire to change everything.

Recensioner i media

Inspired by the internationally coordinated strike for the 8th of March, Gago has given us a book that well captures the revolutionary potential of contemporary feminism - its theories, its organizational forms, its struggles - all examined though the lenses of one of the most radical feminist movements on the American continent. It is a courageous and creative book, an ideal read for political formation; it opens new worlds and calls for action. -- Silvia Federici, author of Caliban and the Witch Gago offers in this book the most comprehensive transversal anaysis and the most compelling case for feminist praxis -- Judith Butler, author of The Force of Non-Violence Gago offers a feminist analysis of"strike" as radical reimagination of traditionalfeminized roles. ... Reading Feminist International affirmed what Ialready hold to be true: women make the world go'round. ... In exploringthe political potential of contemporary radicalfeminist movements worldwide, [this book] showed me thatwomen of color will always provide a voice forpeople fighting to be seen, heard, and kept alive. -- Laura V. Eley * Women's Review of Books * Invigorating ... Gago shows how the "feminist strike" extends beyond conventional parameters-unions, the wage relation, male workers, male bosses-to draw in sex workers, indigenous people, the unemployed, workers in the informal economy, housewives. -- Amia Srinivasan * New Yorker *
