Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches Audre Lorde

Books that every woman should read. Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches by Audreu Lorde.

❛ Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches⁠ ❜⁠ is a collection of essential essays and speeches written by Audreu Lorde, a woman who wrote from the particulars of her identity: #blackwoman, lesbian, #poet, #activist, cancer survivor, mother, and #feministwriter

This collection, now considered a classic volume, of Lorde's most influential works of non-fiction prose has had a groundbreaking impact in the development of contemporary feminist theories-

In fifteen essays and speeches dating from 1976 to 1984, Lorde explores the complexities of intersectional identity, while explicitly drawing from her personal experiences of oppression to include: sexism, heterosexism, #racism, #homophobia, #classism, and #ageism

The book examines a broad range of topics, including #love, #selflove, war, #imperialism, police brutality, coalition building, violence against women, #blackfeminism, and movements towards equality that recognize and embrace differences as a vehicle for change. With meditative conscious reasoning, Lorde explores her misgivings for the widespread #marginalization deeply-rooted in the United States’ white patriarchal system, all the while, offering messages of hope.

The essays in this landmark collection are extensively taught and have become a widespread area of academic analysis. Lorde's philosophical reasoning that recognizes oppressions as complex and interlocking designates her work as a significant contribution to critical social theory
