offers a unique road map of decolonizing feminist scholarship anchored in politically committed, deeply thoughtful solidarity work with indigenous women. Hernández Castillo draws on long-term research-activist partnerships with organized indigenous women in Latin America to demonstrate the 'epistemological wealth' that results from research conducted in alliance with social justice movements. A brilliant and inspiring contribution to key theoretical and methodological issues in transnational, decolonial feminist scholarship.
—Chandra Talpade Mohanty, author of Feminism Without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity
Through a series of long-term self-reflections and intercultural dialogues, Hernández Castillo rethinks the neoliberal assumptions behind rights, knowledge production, bodies, and territories to bring us a refreshing set of analytical ideas about indigenous feminisms powered by the life experiences and epistemologies of indigenous women in Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia.
—Lynn Stephen, author of We Are the Face of Oaxaca: Testimony and Social Movements
This is a landmark book on issues of law, politics, and identity. A remarkable piece of scholarship, Multiple InJustices
is an eloquent, engaged, and extremely well-informed narrative on indigenous women's movements and on their creative use of legal and political tools to advance their struggles. This is the best book on intercultural legal pluralism I have read in many years.
—Boaventura de Sousa Santos, author of Epistemologies of the South: Justice Against Epistemicide
A real contribution to social movement literature, to the literature on gender/feminisms in Latin America, and to the newly emergent literature on activist anthropology.

If there is one central message to the work that carries throughout, it is that people must establish intercultural dialogues regarding women's rights if they are to transcend the racism and ethnocentrism that prevents them from building effective political alliances both within and across North and South America.
