From the publisher’s webpage:

Now in its second edition, the acclaimed anthology Critical Race Feminism presents over 40 readings on the legal status of women of color by leading authors and scholars such as Anita Hill, Lani Guinier, Kathleen Neal Cleaver, and Angela Harris. This second edition features 25 new essays and a new introduction by Adrien Katherine Wing.

Critical Race Feminism gives voice to African American, Latina, Asian, Native American, and Arab women, both heterosexual and lesbian. Both a forceful statement and a platform for change, the anthology addresses an ambitious range of subjects, from life in the workplace and motherhood to sexual harassment, domestic violence, and other criminal justice issues. Extending beyond national borders, the volume tackles global issues such as the rights of Muslim women, immigration, multiculturalism, and global capitalism.

Revealing how the historical experiences and contemporary realities of women of color are profoundly influenced by a legacy of racism and sexism that is neither linear nor logical, Critical Race Feminism serves up a panoramic perspective, illustrating how women of color can find strength in the face of oppression.

    I find this text useful and assign portions of it in my upper-level Feminist Legal Theory seminar. The book includes contributions from FeministLawProfs Berta Esperanza Hernandez-Truyol, Jenny Rivera, Donna Coker, Regina Austin, Margaret Montoya, Pamela Bridgewater and Anita L. Allen-Castellito, among others.

    the combination of our subjective and objective realities lead to the formation of the common field off play we must all walk upon. Thus, since we need as many views as we can examine as no one view can see all things at all times, this kind of book cannot help but bring about a field of play much advanced to any that pre-existed it.
