Breaking Down Barriers: Understanding Abolition Feminism with Gina Dent

The Majority Report’s Emma Vigeland and guest Prof Gina Dent discuss the book Abolition. Feminism. Now.: A Transformative Exploration of Intersectional Freedom Work and Movement Genealogy, an enlightening collaboration by distinguished scholar-activists Angela Y. Davis, Gina Dent, Erica R. Meiners, and Beth E. Richie, which challenges the misconceived notions of abolition and feminism as separate or incompatible endeavors.

This profound work showcases the concealed legacies of queer, anti-capitalist, women-of-color-led, grassroots, and internationalist feminist movements that have significantly shaped contemporary abolitionist and feminist paradigms.

Illustrated with visual depictions of grassroots activists’ efforts, the book sheds light on historical connections, global insights, and practical everyday actions, envisioning a future that fosters collective prosperity and well-being through community-based organizing and empowerment.
