A powerfully persuasive account of what white feminism is and an empowering manifesto for revolution
Feminism is founded on a belief in equality. And in the past 200 years it has made incredible gains- paving the way for women to advance economically, increasing their safety and their power in society, and advocating for their needs and experiences.

But not all women.

Since its conception, feminism has catered to a very particular group of people- middle class, cis-gendered, Western, and above all, white. And this has not merely been an oversight, a failure of inclusion. It has been an active and sustained strategy.

Rafia Zakaria traces the connections between feminism and white supremacy from the suffrage movement to the 'fourth wave' we see today, demonstrating how this movement based on equality has always been riddled with inequality and exploitation. And she issues a powerful call to arms to every reader to build a new kind of feminism which will light the path to true emancipation for all.

Reviews for Against White Feminism

Against White Feminism is the book I have been waiting for. This landmark work will forever change how we view the feminist movement and our place in it -- Sonia Faleiro, author of 'The Good Girls' A brilliant, bracing, and deeply necessary text. Showing how feminism had systematically centred white women's voices, and excluded others', this is a polemic that couldn't be more urgent in improving feminism as a movement -- Kate Manne, author of 'Down Girl' Zakaria is a warm-hearted and sharp-eyed writer who brings compassion, intelligence and a steady drumbeat of change to redefining feminism... This book is going to light fires everywhere, so if you are prone to combust, get right the hell out of the way * Lit Hub - Most Anticipated Books of 2021 *
