Working Feminism

Geraldine Pratt

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter reviews debates that have preoccupied feminists since the 1990s about the co-production or intersectionality of nationalism, racial difference, sexuality, gender and capitalist profitability to consider the possibilities of re-imagining feminist solidarity and what Doreen Massey has called ‘a progressive sense of place’. It considers how migrants reshape debate that has often been conceived within the space of the nation and framed within a rubric of multiculturalism. It introduces new approaches that feminists are taking to re-imagine connections among and across differently situated women, emphasising the need to conceive of ‘difference’ and ‘situatedness’ in concrete geographical terms.

Keywords:   Intersectionality, nationalism, racial difference, counter-topographies, translation, multiculturalism
