Sherene Razack, in her article "Your Place or Mine: Transnational Feminist Collaboration," slaughters sacred cows at a truly phenomenal rate. As this review will demonstrate, her article represents a brilliant and insightful challenge of the tokenism with which liberal, multicultural Canada - and the liberal, multicultural academy - represents women from the "Third World". While the logic of her argument is, I would argue, flawed in spots, the power of her arguments nonetheless reflects a mature feminist discourse that has come of age in our transnational era. Sadly, her arguments - and particularly her analysis of the subtle racism and social constructions of the asylum/refugee process in Northern countries such as Canada - are not likely to be reprinted in the mainstream media where they deserve a wider audience and provoke public debate.
