Colors of Influence: "Ideal intellectual conditions to revisit [Moreton-Robinson's] work"

A twentieth-anniversary edition of this tour de force in feminism and Indigenous studies, now with a new prefaceAileen Moreton-Robinson’s seminal work on Indigenous feminism, “Talkin’ Up to the White Woman,” is an indispensable guide to understanding how intersectional forms of oppression uphold colonial structures in modern Australia. In light of Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements, the scholar's critique of white feminism is just as relevant today as it was 20 years ago. Examining white feminism from the lens of Indigenous women’s current realities and histories, the 20th anniversary edition of the groundbreaking book includes a discussion of theoretical and methodological innovation of Indigenous scholarship.

Race and gender are socially constructed to uplift colonial power. Renewed interest in examining and dismantling racist and capitalistic structures has created ideal intellectual conditions to revisit the scholar’s work, which already had a global impact for more than two decades.  It serves as both inspiration and motivation for a galvanized generation of thinkers, writers, scholars, activists and social justice advocates who can lead the way for deeper analysis of Indigenous sovereignty in First World locations.
