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.
Paperback. 285 Pages.
“This wide-ranging collection of extraordinary writings—drawn from a decade of the important work of make/shift magazine to document feminist cultures and organizing strategies—offers a snapshot of ten years of incisive political and cultural analysis centering the work of women of color artists and activists. In the contemporary political moment, when there is such urgency to act, these writers insist that we consistently critique our analyses and approaches, and remind us how vitally important explicitly intersectional, multi-issue organizing strategies are to the success of our movements. Feminisms in Motion provides both a historical record of significant antiracist feminist interventions and a roadmap for moving us in the direction of freedom and justice.” —Angela Y. Davis
“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

Others have turned to Janet W. Hardy’s ‘The Ethical Slut’, ‘The New Topping Book’ and ‘The New Bottoming Book’ – for advice on the most challenging questions of sex, polyamory, kink, and self-identity.
But Janet had to make it up as she went. How did she do it? Well, as you might expect from the co-author of ‘Sex Disasters… and How to Survive Them’, it hasn’t all been roses (or thorns for that matter).
Here, in Impervious, Janet takes you through the five twisty stages of her own kinky life – mirroring those of any good scene – negotiation, warmup, engagement, climax, and aftercare.

In this groundbreaking new look at rape edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and Full Frontal Feminism author Jessica Valenti, the way we view rape in our culture is finally dismantled and replaced with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure.
Feminist, political, and activist writers alike will present their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model—an approach that while necessary for where we were in 1974, needs an overhaul today.
Yes Means Yes will bring to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape.
Witch, Slut, Feminist: these contested identities are informing millennial women as they counter a tortuous history of misogyny with empowerment.
This innovative primer highlights sexual liberation as it traces the lineage of “witch feminism” through art, film, music, fashion, literature, technology, religion, pop culture, and politics.
Juxtaposing scholarly research on the demonization of women and female sexuality that has continued since the witch hunts of the early modern era with pop occulture analyses and interviews with activists, artists, scholars, and practitioners of witchcraft, this book addresses and illuminates contemporary conversations about reproductive rights, sexual pleasure, queer identity, pornography, sex work, and more.
Author Kristen J. Sollee elucidates the ways in which women have been persecuted for their perceived connection with witchcraft, and how they have fought back, harnessing the legacy of the witch for revolutionary means.

How do we make social justice the most pleasurable human experience? How can we awaken within ourselves desires that make it impossible to settle for anything less than a fulfilling life?
Author and editor adrienne maree brown finds the answer in something she calls “pleasure activism,” a politics of healing and happiness that explodes the dour myth that changing the world is just another form of work.
Drawing on the black feminist tradition, she challenges us to rethink the ground rules of activism. Her mindset-altering essays are interwoven with conversations and insights from other feminist thinkers, including Audre Lorde, Joan Morgan, Cara Page, Sonya Renee Taylor, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs.
Together they cover a wide array of subjects—from sex work to climate change, from race and gender to sex and drugs—building new narratives about how politics can feel good and how what feels good always has a complex politics of its own.
