ABSTRACT: As we welcome the resurgence and reinvention of a feminism that informs all of our resistance movements, creating new forms of nonviolent practice of resistance, we urgently need the work of radical lesbian feminist and humanist Barbara Deming. Her activism and writing from the 1950s through the 1980s, as it weaves through the civil rights, anti-war, feminist and gay movements embodies intersectionality. She was a person of the “in between” who can inspire and help us to live a life of radical creativity and resistance.
