Living Against Austerity
With austerity’s disproportionately heavy impact on women now apparent, this engaging book considers activism against it from a feminist perspective.
Emma Craddock goes deep inside activist culture to explore the many cultural and emotional dimensions of political participation. She questions what motivates and enables protest and the role of gender within it, and considers the enabling aspects, solidarity and empathy of activism and the negative emotions and gender barriers associated with it.
This is a lived-in study that gets to the heart of what it means to be an anti-austerity activist, and an important addition to social justice debate.
