A provocative and obligatory reading to understand the power of intersectional work. I recommend this book because it challenges dominant thinking and offers opportunities to think in an alternative way about difficult situations for women.

“Gypsy feminism is an informed testimony to the emergence of an intersectional Roma feminism. Laura Corradi conducted research, followed and intuited, as a non-Roma scholar, the development of the radical and academic political agenda of Roma feminism. The author not only describes, but also offers a technique to decolonize feminist theory through critical reflection on race, power and privilege. This book represents an essential theoretical foundation for all those interested in the fragmented perspectives and subversive nature of Roma and queer gender activism. It is a unique book, written with the explicit intention of decolonizing the production of knowledge. "
