“The term Abolition Feminism has come into popular usage, especially within feminist circles in the past several years. What is it? What is its genealogy?

What does intersectional feminism have to do with it?” -Margo Okazawa-Rey
Gina Dent and Angela Davis, in conversation with Leti Volpp, argue for the critical role that abolition feminism can play in creating a genuinely secure future for us all. I think abolition feminism must include abolishing the entire military system and values at the core of the US state.
