About the book:

This timely and remarkable collection pays tribute to earlier generations of feminists clearing conceptual and political space to create an Indo-Caribbean feminist intellectual tradition. It is a celebration of that labour and a continuation of that conversation, rigorously tracing and boldly extending those journeys to map emerging stakes, intervene in new ways, engage other diasporic crossings and chart different geographies of resistance and renewal. It offers a necessary vision of Indo-Caribbean feminist thought that is decidedly specific and necessarily capacious and relational. There is much to celebrate and learn from here”- (D. Alissa Trotz, Associate Professor, Caribbean Studies/Women and Gender Studies, University of Toronto).
