Welcome to The Blasted Tree's six-part online series, Feminist Perspectives! Our fourth entry, by series co-editor Bea Keeler, is an essay arguing for intersectionality in the feminist movement. QUEER LIBERATION IN FOURTH WAVE FEMINISM makes a compelling case for unity and understanding across lines of gender and sexuality in our fight for equality under a banner of 'fourth wave' feminism. Keeler's essay provides the theoretical backbone for the Feminist Perspectives series, informing our understanding of feminism as a necessarily multifaceted movement able to rise above its own internal discrepancies.
If you're new to this series, we recommend beginning with the Forward, also by co-editor Bea Keeler, as a quick way to familiarize yourself with the issues and with the general approach we've taken in curating this collection.
