Too much, on purpose: The power of the feminist manifesto.

20200330breannefahs

When we have anger and rage and radicalism, and a pushing back against politeness and respectability, we are also doing that from a fundamental, deep-seated place of love or hope - for what our country could be, or what humanness could be. It's not coming from a place of apathy, it's quite the opposite. We've created a false binary where hatred or anger or taking to the streets or radical protest is seen as the opposite of feeling fundamental love for fellow humans. And that's just not true.

Writer Breanne Fahs explores the power of the feminist manifesto - as a radical acts of anger, revolutionary documents of social change, and histories of futures to be imagined and read and fought for, together.

Breanne Fahs is editor of Burn It Down! Feminist Manifestos for the Revolution from Verso.
