This is the first comprehensive feminist and intersectional analysis of the Occupy movement. The Occupy movement kicked off the abundant period of online and street activism of the 2010's and has shaped many contemporary movements. As its 10-year anniversary approaches, Hurwitz reveals how women and queer persons of a variety of races deployed intersectionality in their innovative, diverse, and inclusive organizing to oppose racism and sexism that plagued the movement from nearly its beginning.
