Race, Ethnicity, Gender and Human Rights in the Americas:
A New Paradigm for Activism

Edited by Celina Romany

About the Book
Race, Ethnicity, Gender and Human Rights in the Americas: A New Paradigm for Activism, is a compilation of 48 articles on "intersectionality" and multiple forms of discrimination. This book was written in order to give voice and visibility to historically "invisi-ble" multiple forms of discrimination experienced by marginalized people, such as the indigenous and afro-descendent women of Latin America. This book is one of a kind, in that it is one of the first books to outline a human rights model that addresses multiple forms of discrimination.

This fresh perspective on human rights law is intended to be used by activists, academics and governments, to support social change to correct all forms of discrimination in Latin America and any other system world-wide where discrimination on the basis of race, eth-nicity and gender is a problem.

The authors were all chosen for their cutting edge commentaries on intersectionality and human rights. The articles themselves vary from dense legal theory to more anthropo-logical-type case studies. The editor is Celina Romany, executive director of the Race, Ethnicity and Gender Justice (REG Justice) Project.
