Product Description

Review

This is an important book. Ward shows how managing diversity in the LGBT non-profit sector mirrors the corporate sector's management of diversity: representing identity differences has become instrumental, not an ethic or end in itself. Her nuanced and complex case studies demonstrate how difference is contained and domesticated, and provide empirical grounding for the larger theoretical claims about the effects of neo-liberal apolitical discourses of diversity, the current funder-directed state of the LGBT social movement, and the importance of documenting ways to resist corporate diversity-speak.--Paisley Currah, Director, Transgender Law and Policy Institute, and Associate Professor of Political Science, Brooklyn College, CUNY

Vital Points March 23 2009
By M. Dase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Especially now, and especially here in California in the wake of the passage of Prop 8, Dr. Ward's book is full of vital information about how incredibly important it is to strive for social justice in an intersectional way, lest we be co-opted, lest we be too divided for unity or coalition, lest we disenfranchise our own voices. Her case studies serve to clearly illustrate what our challenges look like now, and thankfully she provides insight to activists without any sugar-coating or coddling or blue-skying of the issues. A forthright and incredibly valuable text.
