Now in its second edition, the anthology "Critical Race Feminism" presents over 40 readings on the legal status of women of colour by leading authors and scholars such as Anita Hill, Lani Guinier, Kathleen Neal Cleaver, and Angela Harris. This second edition features 25 new essays and a new introduction by Adrien Katherine Wing. "Critical Race Feminism gives" voice to African American, Latina, Asian, Native American, and Arab women, both heterosexual and lesbian. Both a forceful statement and a platform for change, the anthology addresses a wide range of subjects, from life in the workplace and motherhood to sexual harassment, domestic violence, and other criminal justice issues. Extending beyond national borders, the volume tackles global issues such as the rights of Muslim women, immigration, multiculturalism, and global capitalism. Revealing how the historical experiences and contemporary realities of women of colour are profoundly influenced by a legacy of racism and sexism that is neither linear nor logical, "Critical Race Feminism" serves up a panoramic perspective, illustrating how women of colour can find strength in the face of oppression.
