A feminist movement is a collective political movement. Many feminisms mean many movements. A collective is what does not stand still but creates and is created by movement. I think of feminist action as ripples in water, a small wave, possibly created by agitation from weather; here, there each move-ment making another possible, another ripple, outward, reaching.” (Ahmed, 2007, 3) We took on this special issue “#MeToo, Discrimi-nation and Backlash” in order to draw attention to different feminist researchers’ and activists’ efforts to start these ripple effects within their fi eld and within their worlds. We wanted to help them grow their ripple effects into larger waves, making the rings of the ripples reach even farther. But we also wanted to draw attention to how feminist knowled-ge production often comes up against institutiona-lised backlash or brick walls (Ahmed 2017).
