Living a Feminist Life

by Sara Ahmed - £24.99  Duke University Press (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780822363194 | ISBN 10: 0822363194

In Living a Feminist Life Sara Ahmed shows how feminist theory is generated from everyday life and the ordinary experiences of being a feminist at home and at work.
 
Building on legacies of feminist of color scholarship in particular, Ahmed offers a poetic and personal meditation on how feminists become estranged from worlds they critique — often by naming and calling attention to problems — and how feminists learn about worlds from their efforts to transform them. Ahmed also provides her most sustained commentary on the figure of the feminist killjoy introduced in her earlier work while showing how feminists create inventive solutions — such as forming support systems — to survive the shattering experiences of facing the walls of racism and sexism.
 
The killjoy survival kit and killjoy manifesto, with which the book concludes, supply practical tools for how to live a feminist life, thereby strengthening the ties between the inventive creation of feminist theory and living a life that sustains it.
