About this product
- DescriptionRadical movements for social change are t immune to sexual assault and gendered violence. This landmark collection brings together two dozen voices, as fearless as they are compassionate, to challenge the intimate forms of oppression that surround us. The Revolution Starts at Home began as a popular zine when published in its complete form by South End Press (2011). With South End's closing, it went out of print before it could reach its audience - just as its relevance was becoming clear. This facsimile reprint edition will breathe new life into this important project.
