In this exciting, innovative work, Polish feminist philosopher Ewa Majewska proposes a specifically feminist politics of antifascism. Mixing theoretical discussion with engaging reflections on personal experiences, Majewska proposes what she calls “counterpublics of the common” and “weak resistance,” offering an alternative to heroic forms of subjectivity produced by neoliberal capitalism and contemporary fascism.
“Ewa Majewska’s lucid and revolutionary statement is absolutely salutary.”
“One of Poland’s most radical and intellectually adventurous feminists … Like Rosa Luxemburg before her, Majewska embraces failure as inherent to historical change and insists that despair is a luxury we cannot afford.”
“Majewska brilliantly shows that forms which one might consider marginal are in fact at the centre of a necessary redefinition of democracy.”
“A significant contribution to some of the most important debates of our time.”
“Ewa Majewska looks at the ways that feminist spaces resist the tide of fascism.”
“A central figure in Polish feminism.”
