Reviews and Awards
"The revolutionary promise of #MeToo requires we hear about other #MeToos from across the globe. This book fulfills that promise. It teaches us that to bring an end to gender-based violence, we need to create more expansive feminist publics, to find new ways of mobilizing and connecting across time and space. This is a necessary, important, and far-reaching volume." -- Sara Ahmed, author of Complaint!
"The Other #MeToos is an original contribution both to the field of gender and women's studies, as well as to the scholarship on #MeToo. It takes seriously the critiques offered by transnational and postcolonial feminist theory to make visible how patriarchy is global but at the same time racialized. Taking-up the feminist challenge of connecting theory and praxis as a point of departure, its rich collection of theoretical and diverse empirical approaches makes it relevant to theorists, analysts, and practitioners." -- Rirhandu Mageza-Barthel, Professor in Peace and Development Studies, University of South Africa
"An ambitious, refreshing, and original contribution. We have long been waiting for such a valuable teaching, research, and activist resource. Despite occasional essays and media pieces on #MeToo in various other contexts, a comprehensive insight into its links to broader sexual violence activism and feminist thought and organizing has been missing. This book fills that gap." -- Swati Parashar, Professor in Peace and Development, University of Gothenburg
