Abstract [en]

When I juxtaposed two historical icons, Sojourner Truth and Alexandra Kollontai, in a chapter on genealogies of intersectionality (Lykke 2010), transversal dialogue partner, Sirma Bilge (2013), criticized me for whitewashing intersectionality. Reflecting on the critique, I take Bilge’s point about keeping the concept of intersectionality genealogically within Black Feminist theoretical and activist traditions. Situating my reflections in a postsocialist feminism and my position as Europe-based feminist activist and academic with a trajectory back to the socialist feminist 1970s, I also question the role of whiteness and eurocentrism of Marxism and Marxist class analysis in terms of embedding radically, class conscious, anti-(neo)liberalist socialist feminisms in epistemologies of ignorance as regards race and racism.
