Power Interrupted: Antiracist and Feminist Activism inside the United Nations by Falcó

In?Power Interrupted, Sylvanna M. Falcón redirects the conversation about UN-based feminist activism toward UN forums on racism.?

The Durban conference gave feminist activists a pivotal opportunity to expand the debate about the ongoing challenges of global racism, which had largely privileged men??s experiences with racial injustice.
