Both India and South Africa have shared the infamy of being labelled the world’s ‘rape capitals’, with high levels of everyday gender-based and sexual violence. At the same time, both boast long histories of resisting such violence and its location in wider cultures of patriarchy, settler colonialism and class and caste privilege.

Through the lens of the #MeToo moment, the book tracks histories of feminist organising in both countries, while also revealing how newer strategies extended or limited these struggles. Intimacy and injury is a timely mapping of a shifting political field around gender-based violence in the global south. In proposing comparative, interdisciplinary, ethnographically rich and analytically astute reflections on #MeToo, it provides new and potentially transformative directions to scholarly debates this book builds transnational feminist knowledge and solidarity in and across the global south.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The contributors have relied on intersectionality, transnationalism, inclusivity, and reflexivity in their exploration of the landscape of violence and violation in India and South Africa.'Ipshita Mitra, Feminism in India'This brilliant collection brings together incisive and critical accounts of feminist organising, written by, for and from scholars of colour from India and South Africa. By refuting the claim that #MeToo has travelled to the Global South, the book suggests the need for a radical re-imagining of the raced, classed gender politics of sexual violence at scalar level and offers a different perspective “from the margins”.'Sweta Rajan-Rankin, The Sociological Review'Intimacy and injury is a timely mapping of a shifting political field around gender-based violence in the global south.'Gary Edwards, Institute of Development Studies 'Must Reads of 2022''The call for collaborative work across disciplines, modalities and other spaces of knowledge unrecognised by the academy is clearly a priority for decolonial, feminist and queer scholarship. The book models this admirably, it is threaded through with art, images and poetry, both in the chapters and in the reflective pieces that so poignantly draw the sections together. This is indeed a strength of this book which also presents us with a rich account of #MeToo and other feminist activisms within these two global Southern contexts, offering an important contribution to the larger scholarship around #MeToo and extending the lens of the recent international handbook (Chandra and Erlingsdóttir, 2021) which, while providing a valuable and wide scan of geopolitical contexts, included a minority of global Southern voices.'Tamara Shefer, Feminist Encounters (6(2), 34) - .
