In the seventies, the sociologist Christine Delphy co-founded the journal Nouvelles questions féministes with Simone de Beauvoir, and became one of the most influential figures in French feminism; De Beauvoir described her as France's most exciting feminist writer. Decades later, Delphy remains one of the country's most controversial feminist thinkers, and one of the notable few to criticize the government's 2011 ban on the veil as a racist measure. Castigating humanitarian liberals for demanding cultural assimilation of the women they were purporting to "save", Delphy showed how criminalizing Islam in the name of feminism was fundamentally paradoxical.

Dominating Others is Delphy's manifesto against this tendency, and for a fluid understanding of political identity that does not place different political struggles in a false opposition. Introduced by bestselling author Roxane Gay, Dominating Others dismantles the absurd claim that Afghanistan was invaded to save women, and that homosexuals and immigrants alike should reserve their self-expression for private settings, calling instead for a true universalism that sacrifices no one at the expense of others.
