This chapter introduces the book’s focus on ‘mainstream feminism’ and in particular its race dynamics. It situates sexual violence as produced by the intersecting systems of patriarchy, racial capitalism and colonialism and argues that both acts and allegations of sexual violence can be tools of oppression. It argues that a world in which white supremacy is being violently reasserted and in which ‘protecting white women’ is at the forefront of right-wing agendas, poses critical questions for mainstream white feminism.
