Color of Violence
Color of Violence
The 'Color of Violence,' an amazing anthology put out by the INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence Collective, features essays that critically analyze the mainstream violence against women movement, asking what it means to put women of color at the center of our organizing. When the criminal justice system has been so much a source of harm, harassment and imprisonment for women of color, how do we address such state violence? How can we produce a shift away from relying on such systems of violence (police, prisons and border patrols) yet secure safety for women struggling with domestic violence? Within these pages, you'll find the voices of strong women and organizations who address the problems of violence inflicted by the medical establishment, the prison industrial complex, military invasion and poverty, and how these intersectional axes of oppression influence and perpetuate both state and domestic violence against women. INCITE! also features practical examples of how activists within the movement are creating alternatives visions and organizations to address such critical systemic problems.

Exile & Pride
Exile & Pride
Exile & Pride is a compilation of Eli Clare's musings on sex and disability, class, urban vs. rural culture, race, gender and sexual preference with the ease of a poet and the conviction of an activist. This classic intersectional analysis of complex identities and politics is both accessible, relatable and boundary pushing. Clare speaks of the medicalization of people with disabilities, institutional violence, and the constant patronization and desexualization of folks with disabilities. A milestone in disability and queer activism, Eli Clare's 'Exile & Pride' is a must-read.

Yes Means Yes!
Yes Means Yes!
Visions of Female Sexual Power & A World Without Rape
From feminist activist Jaclyn Friedman and founder of feministing.com Jessica Valenti comes this anthology of short stories, essays and critical thoughts on female sexual empowerment in a rape culture world. Going beyond the simplistic "no means no" campaigns, these authors emphasize safe, enthusiastically consensual and exploratory female sexuality. While pointedly criticizing the slut-shaming, victim blaming and sex negativity of mainstream culture, these contributors affirm that the pathway to a world without rape is embracing, celebrating and supporting healthy female sexual expression in all it's wonderful diversity.
