Sister Outsider is a celebration of an important and influential voice of the twentieth century. In Sister Outsider, Audre Lorde examines sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia and class delusion. Her essays show how complicated identity is. Using examples and anecdotes from her own life, she investigates which barriers women encounter and how to deal with them. Lorde believed in recognizing and understanding differences as a driving force for the women’s movement.
The black, feminist, lesbian writer and poet had an exceptional talent for turning her hopes and dreams into clear, powerful language. Her essays exude boldness, fearlessness and enthusiasm. After almost thirty years, they have not lost expressiveness and topicality. Sister Outsider, published in 1984, continues to be a groundbreaking book for the development of contemporary feminism.
