The most comprehensive collection of feminist manifestos, chronicling our rage and dreams from the nineteenth century to today In this landmark collection of spanning four generations of feminist activism and writing, Burn It Down is a history lesson in feminist thought, and a testament to what is possible when we re driven to the edge. Organized thematically and with substantial introductions, this is a book for the activist, the student, the too-angry and the not-angry-enough. You ll find: "Dyke Manifesto" by the Lesbian Avengers "Mini-Manual of Individualist Anarchism" by Emile Armand "Intercourse" by Andrea Dworkin "Manifesto of the Erased" by Crystal Zaragoza The "Ax Tampax Poem Feministo" from the Bloodsisters Project "Cyborg Manifesto" by Donna Haraway "TRASHGiRRRRLLLZZZ" by Elizabeth Broeder "The Manifesto of Apocalyptic Witchcraft" by Peter Grey The manifesto, feminist scholar Breanne Fahs notes, is always "on unsteady ground," raging and wanting, desiring and disdaining, promoting solidarity or individual pain, all at once. As she notes, we need manifestos in all their urgent rawness and their insistence that we have to act now, that we must face this, that the bleeding edge of rage and defiance is where new ideas are born.
