The most comprehensive collection of feminist manifestos, chronicling our rage and dreams from the nineteenth century to today!In this landmark collection spanning three centuries and four waves of feminist activism and writing, Burn It Down! is a testament to what is possible when women are driven to the edge. The manifesto—raging and wanting, quarreling and provoking—has always played a central role in feminism, and it’s the angry, brash feminism we need now.Collecting over seventy-five manifestos from around the world, Burn It Down! is a rallying cry and a call to action. Among this confrontational sisterhood, you’ll find literary works such as, “Dyke Manifesto” by the Lesbian Avengers, “The Ax Tampax Poem Feministo” by the Bloodsisters Project, and “Anarchy and the Sex Question” by Emma Goldman---just to name a few! Breanne Fahs argues that we need manifestos in all their urgent rawness—their insistence that we have to act now, that we must face this, that the bleeding edge of rage and defiance ignites new and revolutionary possibilities is where new ideas are born.
