Hobson Discusses All the Women and Continuing Legacies | @AAIHS

Janell Hobson, editor Are All the Women Still White? Rethinking Race, Expanding Feminisms (SUNY Press, 2016) discusses the rationale behind revisiting the titular question:

“So why ask the question: Are all the women still white? … The volume’s titular question is a guiding reminder that gender and racial signage must be viewed as inherently questionable and unfixed, ever shifting and destabilized in different contexts, despite efforts to continually “fix” the category of woman through the narrow frames of white supremacist capitalist heteropatriarchy both in theory and in practice…We are still struggling to create transformative theories and practices that dismantle racism and its interlocking effects on hetero/sexism, classism, imperialism and other oppressive ideologies…”
