agribusiness and agroecology in the rural landscape. We weave our reflections and conceptualisation through the lens of feminisms in the plural, and in a dialogue between the Marxist and decolonial feminisms of the ‘feminisation of resistance’ concept developed by Sara C. Motta (one of the authors of this piece) ( Motta, 2013 , 2019 , 2020 , 2022 , forthcoming ; Motta and Seppälä, 2016 ); the concept of escrevivência (writing the life, or ‘livature’) developed in the work of Afro-Brazilian theorist Maria da Conceição Evaristo (2020) ; and the writings of the feminist
This ground-breaking collection interrogates protest camps as sites of gendered politics and feminist activism.
Drawing on case studies that range from Cold War women-only peace camps to more recent mixed-gender examples from around the world, diverse contributors reflect on the recurrence of gendered, racialised and heteronormative structures in protest camps, and their potency and politics as feminist spaces.

A piece of writing, writing that is laden with love, pain, daily experiences and experiments. “Escrevivência” as writing from the experience of a

Moreover, Ahia and Johnson’s chapter does not ossify Indigenous idioms but reveals their porousness with international feminist and queer narratives about dignity and respect, even in the face of internal opposition. This valuable approach is echoed by Motta et al, who insist on the relation of land to body through the reoccupation of tierra and through a partial re-imagining of language and onto-epistemologies in terms of what they call escrevivência and the
