Abstract and Keywords
This chapter reflects on a survey conducted among thirty-three feminist scholar-activists from Asia, South America, the Caribbean, North Africa, Europe, and North America in their forties to eighties. The chapter honors the voices, theorizations, and multiple genealogies of our feminist interlocutors, constructing a dialogue that foregrounds the similarities and the differences in our collective thinking and praxis as it has evolved over the decades. It maps out these feminist genealogies to understand how far women have come in creating a better world for themselves in this phase of capitalism and to have a sense of what feminists across the globe are thinking about the challenges we face at this historical juncture.
Keywords: solidarity, women of color, neoliberalism, global south, state practices, colonial legacies, capitalism, transnational networks, antiracist struggles, feminist activism, feminist social movements, scholar activists, ethnographic survey
