Brexit logics: Myths and Facts- A Black Feminist Analysis

Rajan-Rankin, S. (2017) Brexit logics: Myths and Facts- A Black Feminist Analysis. feminists@law, 27 (7). ISSN 2046-9551.


On June 24, 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union in a landmark referendum result. The ‘Brexit’ vote along with Trump’s presidential election in America, the Turkish referendum, the French election and the rise in far-right groups more globally, have been underpinned by certain populist ‘logics’. This comment seeks to agitate these Brexit logics through a Black Feminist perspective that refocuses current debates on power and the intersectional politics of gender, race and class.
