Die Autorin, Wissenschaftlerin und Aktivistin Sara Ahmed legte Ende 2016 ihre Professur am Goldsmiths College (University of London), aus Protest gegen den Umgang der Institution mit sexueller Belästigung, nieder. In ihrem 2017 erschienenen Buch beschäftigt sie sich mit Fragen zu institutioneller Macht, persönlichem Handlungsspielraum und feministischer Praxis.

“In Living a Feminist Life Sara Ahmed shows how feminist theory is generated from everyday life and the ordinary experiences of being a feminist at home and at work. Building on legacies of feminist of color scholarship in particular, Ahmed offers a poetic and personal meditation on how feminists become estranged from worlds they critique – often by naming and calling attention to problems – and how feminists learn about worlds from their efforts to transform them.” (Vgl.
