This piece introduces the set of articles assembled from our call for Rapid Responses to the Women’s March on Washington circulated in February, 2017. Each addresses issues arising through collective expressions of protest. The Women’s March on Washington, organized on the twin principles of intersectionality and inclusion, acted as a flashpoint for the generation of emergent spaces to do politics differently. In the search for solidarity, tensions within groups and among individuals shaped the way in which resistance and protests were responded to and organized. The authors in this collection take up themes of intersectionality and inclusion/exclusion via politicizing the personal, contesting the state, and challenging simplistic notions of unity in solidarity.
