Lessons from the Legacy

(p.171) Epilogue
Scream from the Shadows

Setsu Shigematsu

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter outlines significant transformations and lessons from Ūman ribu’s legacy, as points of reflection for the future. It suggests the need for a new feminist analytics and ethics of violence that takes into account the historical and systemic forms of violence that are essential to the philosophies and epistemologies of liberation. The events surrounding Ribu and other movements demonstrate the dangers that accompany the reification of a revolutionary subject or icon, and emphasize how equality remains an illusive ideal that can unsettle leftist hierarchies.

Keywords:   Ūman ribu, feminist analytics, violence ethics, liberation, leftist hierarchies, equality
