Publisher's Summary

Newly revised and updated, this landmark anthology offers gripping portraits of American life as seen through the eyes of young women of color

It has been decades since women of color first turned feminism upside down, exposing the feminist movement as exclusive, white, and unaware of the concerns and issues of women of color from around the globe. Since then, key social movements have risen, including Black Lives Matter, transgender rights, and the activism of young undocumented students. Social media has also changed how feminism reaches young women of color, generating connections in all corners of the country. And yet we remain a country divided by race and gender.

Now, a new generation of outspoken women of color offer a much-needed fresh dimension to the shape of feminism of the future. In Colonize This!, Daisy Hernandez and Bushra Rehman have collected a diverse, lively group of emerging writers who speak to the strength of community and the influence of color, to borders and divisions, and to the critical issues that need to be addressed to finally reach an era of racial freedom. With prescient and intimate writing, Colonize This! will reach the hearts and minds of listeners who care about the experience of being a woman of color, and about establishing a culture that fosters freedom and agency for women of all races.

"These women express a more radical, racialized feminism that broadens the movement beyond its early incarnation." (Booklist)

Worthy Read

Some stories I loved and some I cringed at and couldn't wait for them to end. I found myself in many. Some brought me to tears, others lol'd. It's totally worth reading.

a must- read for any woman of color

While more voices are needed to make this a 5- star all around review, the essays presented are remarkable. As an adopted woman of color it is often hard to find commonalities with other intersectional feminists because I am often caught between worlds but this book has points of views from such a wide variety of feminists, I identified with so much and felt truly seen. I highly recommend this book.
