Vibe: “These women of diverse backgrounds express a more radical, racialized feminism that broadens the movement beyond its early incarnation.”

Minneapolis City Pages: “Whereas Bad Feminist is accessible, Colonize This! is radical. Daisy Hernandez collected and edited voices that need to be heard, and now it’s your turn to actively listen.”

“Hernandez and Rehman’s clear, crisp editing of these raw and honest testimonios make Colonize This! an extremely readable, teachable libro. Well done, mijas.”
Gloria Anzaldúa, Borderlands/la Frontera: The New Mestiza

“A desperately needed and lovingly executed collection, Colonize This! is a critical contribution to the growing body of third wave literature….These young women pick up where foremothers Audre Lorde and Gloria Anzaldúa left off. A must for young women of color searching for themselves within contemporary feminist/womanist discourse, and anyone else who wants to get down with the fierceness of fly, intellectual divas of color.”
Rebecca Walker, Black, White and Jewish

“I hope Colonize This! makes it onto Women Studies 101 syllabi nationwide. Maybe it can help ensure that race is an integral element of feminist dialogue, and keep women from leaving the women’s studies classroom when discussions of race begin.”
bitch magazine

“[The] tension between “learned” feminism and “lived” feminism is what gives [this] collection its emotional and intellectual heft.”
Girlfriends magazine

“Honest, well-written essays that tackle a complex intersection of race, gender, and economics . . . these contemporary “sistah outsiders” don’t shy away from sticky issues when addressing the complexities of their lives. Refusing to simplify in order to fit into someone’s mold, these women dare you to dismiss them.”
Bust magazine

“These women express a more radical, racialized feminism that broadens the movement beyond its early incarnation.”
Booklist

“This is one of those books which should be required reading for every young sister out there.”
