Chapter 4 further complicates the apparent division between action and inaction, investigating the various sites and forms of political activism that reveal how resistance may become caught up in power. From everyday forms of resistance to participation in a range of organized activist initiatives, this chapter explores the ways in which some leftists continue to take action despite expressing political depression. However, gender analysis reveals how contestation at one level might fail to challenge relations and realities at wider levels, exposing telescoping layers of power. Here, apathy emerges not opposite activism but, paradoxically, sometimes as the very product of political participation.
