"At a critical juncture in this country’s history, women are at the forefront of the citizens’ resistance against authoritarian oppression. Women of the Underground: Resistance contains more than twenty interviews with women activists working at the forefront of social justice movements and communities including Black Lives Matter, ACT UP, Code Pink, Earth Justice, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Innocence Project, Ruckus Society, and more, as they move the culture forward to a more equitable and just society. A call to action for citizens of all genders and ages, this book articulately reveals lesser-known hidden histories, and also serves as an instruction manual for direct action and community organizing."
Welcome to the Resistance! The book is set for 2019 summer release! The collection of interviews were taken from conversations that lasted for 2 to 4 hours between myself and the founders of the organizations or core organizers of the movements. What started out to be a celebration of how far we've come and the accomplishments of these women and what I hoped would be our first woman president, is now a Call To Action. These discussions outline the women's lives, a recalling of the movements from the front lines, the history of the organizations and a guide book to civil disobedience and direct action. Oppression of one is oppression of all..
