As Nora Samaran writes, "violence is nurturance turned backwards." In its place, she proposes "nurturance culture" as the opposite of rape culture, suggesting that models of care and accountability--different from "call-outs" rooted in the politics of guilt--can move toward dismantling systems of dominance and oppression.
When communities identify and interrupt systemic violence, prioritize the needs of those harmed, and hold a circle of belonging that humanizes everyone, they create a foundation that can begin to resist and repair the harms inflicted by patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism. Emerging from insights in gender studies, race theory, and psychology, and influenced by contemporary social movements, Turn This World Inside Out engages today's crucial questions, helping move us beyond seemingly intractable barriers to collective change.
Includes the essays "The Opposite of Rape Culture Is Nurturance Culture," "On Gaslighting," and "Own, Apologize, Repair," as well as conversations with Serena Bhandar, Ruby Smith D az, Aravinda Ananda, Natalie Knight, and Alix Johnson.
