Xenofeminism is not a bid for revolution, but a wager on the long game of history, demanding imagination, dexterity and persistence. Xenofeminism seeks to construct a coalitional politics, a politics without the infection of purity. Is xenofeminism a programme? Not if this means anything so crude as a recipe, or a single-purpose tool by which a determinate problem is solved. Xenofeminism is a platform, an incipient ambition to construct a new language for sexual politics – a language that seizes its own methods as materials to be reworked, and incrementally bootstraps itself into existence. Xenofeminism is a politics for alienation.
