The powerful Beyoncé, formidable Rihanna, and the incalculable Nikki Minaj. Their images lead one to wonder: are they a new incarnation of black feminism and black women’s agency, or are they only pure fantasy in which, instead of having agency, they are in fact the products of the forces of patriarchy and commercialism? More broadly, one can ask whether black women in general are only being led to believe that they have power but are really being drawn back into more complicated systems of exploitation and oppression. Or, are black women subverting patriarchy by challenging notions of their subordinate and exploitable sexuality? In other words, ‘who is playing who’? Black Women, Agency, and the New Black Feminism identifies a generational divide between traditional black feminists and younger black women. While traditional black feminists may see, for example, sexualized images of black women negatively and as an impediment to progress, younger black women tend to embrace these new images and see them in a positive light. After carefully setting up this divide, this enlightening book will suggest that a more complex understanding of black feminist agency needs to be developed, one that is adapted to the complexities faced by the younger generation in today’s world. Arguing the concept of agency as an important theme for black feminism, this innovative title will appeal to scholars, teachers, and students interested in black feminist and feminist philosophy, identity construction, subjectivity and agency, race, gender, and class.

Brauchen Frauen und Männer in Supervision und Coaching Unterschiedliches? Werden Frauen und Männer in der supervisorischen Praxis „gleich“ behandelt? Was bedeutet Genderkompetenz im beraterischen Setting? Diesen und ähnlichen Fragen geht die Autorin nach und räumt mit Vorurteilen und Alltagstheorien gründlich auf. Das Buch leistet einen Beitrag zur differenzierten und theoriegeleiteten Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Gender. Mittels einer mehrperspektivischen Herangehensweise beleuchtet die Autorin das Thema Gender aus verschiedenen theoretischen Ansätzen, verknüpft sie mit Forschungsergebnissen, stellt mit Fallvignetten einen Praxisbezug her und vernetzt diese zu einem Integrativen Verständnis von Genderkompetenz in Supervision und Coaching. Für die Praxis wird diese Herangehensweise in einem Fragenset zur Reflexion von Prozessen auf der Genderebene verdeutlicht.

Reveals a remarkable woman’s life and her contributions to social justice movements related to Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. As an organizer, writer, publisher, scholar-activist, and elected official, Barbara Smith has played key roles in multiple social justice movements, including Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. Her four decades of grassroots activism forged collaborations that introduced the idea that oppression must be fought on a variety of fronts simultaneously, including gender, race, class, and sexuality. By combining hard-to-find historical documents with new unpublished interviews with fellow activists, this book uncovers the deep roots of today’s “identity politics” and “intersectionality” and serves as an essential primer for practicing solidarity and resistance. “Barbara Smith is a creator of modern feminism as a writer, organizer, editor, publisher, and scholar. Now she has added to her decades as an activist outside the system by becoming an elected official who truly listens, represents, and creates bridges to a common good. She has shown us that democracy is a seed that can only be planted where we are.” — Gloria Steinem “Barbara Smith is one of the grand pioneering and prophetic voices of our time. Her truth still hurts and heals!” — Cornel West “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around is not a memoir, a biography, nor a reader. It is a reflection and a conversation. It is also a montage of forty years of documents, interviews, and articles that provide useful lessons for social justice work. This book is a tour de force that documents the life’s work of Barbara Smith and the freedom struggles she shaped.” — Duchess Harris, author of Black Feminist Politics from Kennedy to Obama

Die hier versammelten Beiträge spiegeln den aktuellen Stand der Debatte um Intersektionalität 20 Jahre nach Prägung des Begriffes im Schwarzen Feminismus in den USA. Bei seiner transatlantischen Reise durchlief der Ansatz Metamorphosen und fiel in Europa auf vorbereiteten Boden, insbesondere in anglophonen und deutschsprachigen feministischen Diskursen. Klasse, Geschlecht, Ethnizität und „Rasse“, Sexualität, Behinderung, Alter und andere Dimensionen von Ungleichheit und Identität werden inzwischen in intersektioneller Perspektive untersucht. In diesem Band wird der Ansatz vorgestellt und in transdisziplinäre und transnationale Analyseperspektiven wie Diskurstheorie, Biographieforschung, Wissenssoziologie, Rahmenanalyse und Sozialstrukturanalyse eingesetzt, ergänzt um kritische Interventionen zu Problemen und Grenzen dieses Konzepts. Mit Beiträgen von Mechtild Bereswill, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Kathy Davis, Jeff Hearn, Gudrun-Axeli Knapp, Kira Kosnick, Gail Lewis, Helma Lutz, Nina Lykke, Myra Marx Ferree, Anke Neuber, Ann Phoenix, Paula Irene Villa, Nira Yuval Davis, und Dubravka Zarkov.
