¿Son obsoletas las prisiones? book cover
¿Son obsoletas las prisiones?
Angela Y. Davis - 2003-04-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Amid rising public concern about the proliferation and privitization of prisons, and their promise of enormous profits, world-renowned author and activist Angela Y. Davis argues for the abolition of the prison system as the dominant way of responding to America's social ills. “In thinking about the possible obsolescence of the prison,” Davis writes, “we should ask how it is that so many people could end up in prison without major debates regarding the efficacy of incarceration.” Whereas Reagan-era politicians with “tough on crime” stances argued that imprisonment and longer sentences would keep communities free of crime, history has shown that the practice of mass incarceration during that period has had little or no effect on official crime rates: in fact, larger prison populations led not to safer communities but to even larger prison populations. As we make our way into the twenty-first century—two hundred years after the invention of the penitentiary —the question of prison abolition has acquired an unprecedented urgency. Backed by growing numbers of prisons and prisoners, Davis analyzes these institutions in the U.S., arguing that the very future of democracy depends on our ability to develop radical theories and practices that make it possible to plan and fight for a world beyond the prison industrial complex.

Feminist Theory
From Margin to Center
Bell Hooks - 1984-01-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center by Bell Hooks presents a blueprint for the feminist movement that is just as thought-provoking and relevant today as it was when first published. Hooks's direct style challenges readers to consider a new vision for feminism and to find a common language to create a global movement.

Fearing the Black Body book cover
Fearing the Black Body
Strings - 2019-05-07
Calificación de Goodreads
This book explores the historical development of ideologies that support Western, patriarchal white supremacy, specifically the yoking of beauty to Protestant, Anglo-Saxon whiteness. Beginning in the Renaissance and ending in the 1990s, the author charts the development of ideals of race and beauty that juxtaposed slim, desirable white women against corpulent black women. Interestingly, the author does not address fat from a health standpoint or previous attitudes held towards corpulence.

“Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia” by #SabrinaStrings @SaStrings So grateful for this book. It is a truly remarkable piece of work that offers great insight into the history of fatphobia and its origins in the fear and hatred of the Black body. #mcgreads      fuente

A hilarious and unapologetic memoir on feminism, self-discovery, and body positivity, where writer and humorist Lindy West narrates her life with vulnerability and charm.

Putas Insolentes
The Fight for Sex Workers' Rights
Molly Smith - 2018-06-26
Calificación de Goodreads
El debate sobre la prostitución está mesiánicamente copado por postura simplistas y criminalizantes, rayanas en el prohibicionista; posturas que, desde un punto de vista moralista, puritano y excluyente, niegan la palabra alas trabajadoras sexuales y, por lo tanto, impiden cualquier debate que atienda a las complejidades materiales y sociales que atraviesan esta cuestión. En este contexto, este libro resulta doblemente necesario. Justificaría su necesidad el que lo hayan escrito trabajadoras sexuales y que se base en la labor militante y en la experiencia de los colectivos de trabajadoras sexuales de todo el mundo. Pero su mayor virtud reside en que nunca pierde de vista el eje y la meta sobre la que deben articularse todas las políticas y las discusiones sobre la prostitución: las vidas, los derechos y el bienestar de las personas que se dedican al trabajo sexual. En este sentido, hablar desde la defensa de la vida y el bienestar de las personas que se dedican al trabajo sexual supone hablar de las realidades que conforman su existencia: sexo, trabajo, pobreza, migración, fronteras, racismo, sexismo, transforma, así como de las consecuencias que cada uno de los modelos de regulación legal de la prostitución tienen para su supervivencia y su seguridad. Por esta perspectiva poliédrica, compleja a partir de la experiencia militante, Putas Insolentes es seguramente la mejor aproximación a la controvertida cuestión del trabajo sexual publicada en castellano.

Visions of Female Sexual Power and A World Without Rape
Jaclyn Friedman - 2008-12-02
Calificación de Goodreads
This groundbreaking anthology edited by feminist writers Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti presents a new approach to the conversation around rape culture. Through a variety of perspectives and experiences, the book aims to dismantle the "No Means No" model and promote a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure. Its radical ideas discuss educating people to value female sexuality and pleasure, and rewriting the narrative around rape to end it. Essential reading for anyone interested in feminist theory and politics.

Mujeres, raza y clase
Angela Y. Davis - 1983-02-12 (publicado por primera vez en 1981)
Calificación de Goodreads
El presente libro trata de desvelar las causas que llevaron a que las reivindicaciones de las mujeres negras fueran sistemáticamente invisibilizadas a pesar del potencial revolucionario que encerraba un movimiento semejante. En sus distintos capítulos, Angela Y. Davis ofrece un análisis riguroso y esclarecedor que no sólo pone de manifiesto las estrategias de lucha de las mujeres negras, sino los problemas de composición de las diferencias que siguen desgarrando los movimientos políticos actuales.
