Editors for this issue: Rita Monticelli and Lorenzo Mari

Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity (2003), Chandra Talpade Mohanty suggested that, however difficult, the conversation between Euro-American, postcolonial and other feminist traditions still envisions the “practice of solidarity” – rather than of “sisterhood” or other related terms – as a specific, transnational form of “anticapitalist struggle”.
