A Revolutionary Subject: Pedagogy of Women of Color and Indigeneity is a call to radical educators, grassroots organizers, and others on the left to recognize the enormous historical legacy of and potential for revolutionary praxis that exists among Women of Color and Indigeneity. This book revitalizes Marx's dialectics to challenge class-reductionism, highlighting a class struggle that is also necessarily anti-racist, anti-sexist, and against all forms of oppression.

"A Revolutionary Subject: Pedagogy of Women of Color and Indigeneity is a tour de force. By moving her analyses beyond a bourgeois reformist agenda, Lilia D. Monzo cleverly and courageously situates her denouncement of patriarchy in a revolutionary praxis that keenly unveils that any authentic empowerment of women must include all oppressed women who come to voice through conscientization rather than through voice-as-gift by those who remain complicit with the privileges inscribed in whiteness. In a revolutionarily eloquent yet accessible prose, Monzo dares us to imagine the voice of Women of Color not as a gift but as a democratic right-as a human right. She challenges all men and women who think of themselves as agents of change to aspire for coherence and deeply comprehend that, in the end, there will be no change without privilege suicide." -Donaldo Macedo, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education at the University of Massachusetts
"This study of the impact of Women of Color and Indigenous peoples on the social struggles of our time profoundly illuminates the complex relation of class, race, and gender through an open-ended dialectical perspective. It challenges Eurocentric readings of Marx's work while showing that all social theories must be re-thought and re-developed anew in light of the ideas and perspectives being generated by Chicanx and Latinx women, Indigenous peoples, and the Black Freedom Movement." -Peter Hudis, Professor at Oakton Community College and author of Marx's Concept of the Alternative to Capitalism and Frantz Fanon: Philosopher of the Barricades
"Women of Color around the world continue to suffer the devastating impact of racialized capitalism, despite historical efforts to promote gender equality. In A Revolutionary Subject: Pedagogy of Women of Color and Indigeneity, Lilia D. Monzo provides a much-needed Marxist-humanist rereading of coloniality and gendered exploitation to her engagement of the woman question, placing the voices and experiences of Women of Color at the center of the discourse. The result is an excellent treatise that challenges bourgeois liberal feminist notions of empowerment by reinvigorating the tradition of historical materialism with revolutionary gendered insights of indigeneity and class struggle." -Antonia Darder, Leavey Presidential Endowed Chair of Ethics and Moral Leadership at Loyola Marymount University
"Lilia D. Monzo draws upon Marxist, humanist, and feminist theory, as well as theology of liberation, to develop a new type of pedagogy of the oppressed for the twenty-first century that connects the need to uproot capitalism with the equally necessary uprooting of racism, sexism, and heterosexism. She bases her argument on the writings, life experiences, and struggles of Women of Color and Indigenous women, from the barrios and ghettoes of the Americas to other sites of revolutionary ferment, from France to China and from Russia to Rojava. This remarkable and original work theorizes a type of radical pedagogy that can accompany, help sustain, and help deepen the critical consciousness of some of today's most important movements for revolution and social justice." -Kevin B. Anderson, Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of Marx at the Margins
