“This remarkable collection of essays, stories, and artwork showcases multiple ways in which feminists have and continue to struggle for equality and a just society. Brodsky and Nalebuff have created a collection of highly readable interpretations of feminist utopias as they emerge from a wide array of perspectives, including women's political standpoints, their ethnic and racial situations, sexual preferences, and class positions. Taken together these brilliant and beautifully crafted essays signal new and radical directions in feminism. The Feminist Utopia Project is essential reading for anyone who has ever imagined a better world.” —Crystal N.
