Feminism was born of acts of witness, and throughout its many transformations, bearing witness has played crucial roles. This issue looks at the legal and political contexts that have structured women’s efforts to testify to injustice; it examines new methodologies that feminists have used to bear witness and the role of objects in the process of testifying; and highlights the experience of contemporary and historical feminist witnesses to oppression and transformation.
