Young feminists today are becoming activists on behalf of many causes beyond the classic—and indispensable--feminist ones of reproductive rights and equal pay for equal work. In The Fire This Time, Dawn Martin, one of four founders of The Third Wave Foundation--a multiracial, multi-issue, and multicultural activist organization--and Vivien Labaton, its first executive director, offer an exciting cross section of feminist voices that express new directions in activism, identity, and thought. Ayana Bird dissects the role of black women in hip-hop; Joshua Breitbart and Ana Noguiera demonstrate how Indimedia can break the hold of the corporate media over the news; and Jennifer Bleyer reviews the exhilarating power unleashed by the GirlZine movement. Anna Kirkland’s analysis of transsexual and transgendered people and the law is deeply thoughtful, and Shireen Lee's piece on women, technology, and feminism envisions empowering prospects for women.. Ranging from media and culture to politics and globalization, The Fire This Time is a call to new frontiers of activism, and helps reinvent feminism for a new generation.

Vivien Labaton is a third-year law student at New York University Law School. She was the founding Director of the Third Wave Foundation, the only national young feminist organization in the country, and currently serves on the boards of Third Wave, Political Research Associates, and the Women’s Funding Network. She lives in Brooklyn, New York Dawn Lundy Martin is one of four cofounders of the Third Wave Foundation. She has a long history of activism in anti-war, queer rights, and environmental justice movements. A Ph.D. candidate in English at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, she is also an award-winning poet and author of the chapbook,The Morning Hour. She lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
