  • Bracing and compassionate... Make room beside Audre Lorde and Angela Davis on your shelves

    Chicago Review of Books
  • A thoughtful and provocative collection calling for a sharper feminism... It is a must-read

    Roxane Gay
  • Against White Feminism is the book I have been waiting for. This landmark work will forever change how we view the feminist movement and our place in it

    Sonia Faleiro, author of 'The Good Girls'
  • What does feminism look like when it centers on Black and Brown women? And when it doesn't hold hands with colonialism? Rafia Zakaria makes a clear case for intersectional feminism that puts power in a different place

    Washington Post
  • Zakaria is a warm-hearted and sharp-eyed writer who brings compassion, intelligence and a steady drumbeat of change to redefining feminism... This book is going to light fires everywhere, so if you are prone to combust, get right the hell out of the way

    Lit Hub - Most Anticipated Books of 2021
  • A brilliant, bracing, and deeply necessary text. Showing how feminism had systematically centred white women's voices, and excluded others', this is a polemic that couldn't be more urgent in improving feminism as a movement

    Kate Manne, author of 'Down Girl'
  • Lucid and persuasive... Tackling complex philosophical ideas with clarity and insight, Zakaria builds an impeccable case for the need to rebuild feminism from the ground up. Readers will want to heed this clarion call for change

    Publishers Weekly
  • In this searing takedown, Rafia Zakaria expertly puts into words what so many women of colour feel and endure. An exhilarating and brilliantly researched read that doubles up as a long overdue call to action. Unputdownable, required reading for people of all genders, generations and races

    Zahra Hankir, editor of 'Our Women on the Ground'
  • Complacent, well-intentioned feminism isn't good enough... The heart of what this book demands - a feminism that is less self-satisfied and secure in its power, more curious about the differences in women's experiences, and more generous and expansive in its reach - is worth fighting for

    Mythili G. Rao, Washington Post
  • Zakaria eloquently reveals the smug assumptions behind white western feminism [and] demonstrates quite brilliantly the hypocrisy of middle and upper class white feminists who conveniently ignore and exploit the power advantages traceable to centuries of imperialism. This book is a wake-up call for white feminists

    Remi Adekoya, author of 'Biracial Britain'
