      The authors describe how such hashtags as #MeToo, #SurvivorPrivilege, and #WhyIStayed have challenged the conventional understanding of gendered violence; examine the voices and narratives of Black feminism enabled by #FastTailedGirls, #YouOKSis, and #SayHerName; and explore the creation and use of #GirlsLikeUs, a network of transgender women. My book Me, Not You: the trouble with mainstream feminism is published by Manchester University Press. This book presents a challenging critique of mainstream feminism dominated by white and privileged women. It argues that ‘me, too’ becomes ‘me, not you’: an exclusive focus on white women, and a desire for punishment that legitimates oppressive systems.. "This original, visionary, urgent, and brilliantly argued book significantly advances political theory and social movement criticism." — Urvashi Vaid, author of Virtual Equality: The Mainstreaming of Gay & Lesbian Liberation "An invaluable resource not just for rethinking gender justice, but for rethinking how we do social justice organizing in general.".
