Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills.  Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.

By locating the third world women in their lived historical and material context, Chandra Mohanty Talpade argues one can analyze women as socioeconomic political groups in their local context, in contrast to the western feminist “homogenized average third world women”. Mohanty then goes on to deconstruct through decolonial practices a reductive and homogenising “Third World difference” which “appropriate and colonize the constitutive complexities that characterize the lives of women in these (third world) countries”. The growing third world and transnational feminism has led to new intersectional outcomes questioning the old binaries and barriers.
