From Sabotage to Support: A New Vision for Feminist Solidarity in the Workplace
By Joy L. Wiggins and Kami J. Anderson
Feminists have been fighting for decades against the stereotypes that women are somehow hardwired to backstab, claiming that it is not true and seeking to create unity among women. Unfortunately, as we are learning, there is in fact a type of sabotage that falls along racial lines. Different from the stereotypical personal catfight, these divisions between white women, black women and other women of color are rooted in history and are more pervasive than we realize. It occurs when women of different identities unwittingly sabotage each other.
This book teaches readers how to take an active approach to better understand ourselves, the biases we may be holding without realizing it, and lift up other women along the way.
What My Readers Are Saying...
★★★★★ DO THE WORK
"I think if you want a starter book on understanding feminism, allyship, and repairing relationships this book could be a helpful resources. I appreciate that it focused specifically how women can and should stand in solidarity of each other (what's missing is how transwomen are folded in but I will assume they are included but just not addressed on page). The tone of the book is hopeful but realistic that you must be willing to do the work, be uncomfortable, constantly agree to deconstruct harmful ideals, and be kind to yourself as you grow. I really appreciate how each chapter is constructed with just enough information to get you thinking then ends with reflection/action steps. This book could be helpful in a work environment."
★★★★★ PACKED WITH WISDOM
“Packed with everyday wisdom and common-sense recommendations, From Sabotage to Support provides an important alternative to our oppositional, combative social milieu. The authors offer insights, analyses, strategies, and everyday wisdom that give us the necessary tools to transform our workplaces into more equitable, harmonious, inclusive spaces.”
★★★★★ A COMPLETE GUIDE TO EMPOWERING THE WOMEN AROUND YOU
"I purchased this book for myself and the rest of my staff, I am so glad I did! Joy and Kami navigate the reader through the frustrations and challenges that all women face, while exploring empathy, strength, and equity.
I highly recommend this book for anyone, regardless of age, gender, or race. We all could use more tools for cultivating a culture in which humans are judged by their goodness, not by their ability to fit into the boxes established by the patriarchy."
★★★★★ A FANTASTIC ADDITION TO THE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE FOR WOMEN
"From Sabotage to Support is a fantastic addition to the body of knowledge for women (and allies) by women. This book lays down a solid foundation for people new to feminist and womanist journeys while providing immensely actionable guidance for managing our sabotaging behaviors toward ourselves and others. The authors thoughtfully include myriad diverse identities and movements that define the complex human experience. This book will forever change you, your workplace, and the way that you embrace and connect with people.”
