This paper is grounded in feminist standpoint and critical race theory, intersectionality and a critique of the neoliberal system and austerity to explore Romani women's activism. In-depth interviews with four prominent activists showed the strength of identity and experience growing up as Romani women in their motivation for activism, the complexity of projects in arts, acting/directing, writing, policy advocacy, education, networking, mobilisation to challenge injustice and promote transformation; and barriers of hostility, oppression and austerity. Key findings concerned the central importance of solidarity, support, respectful listening between Roma women and allies to counter the isolation of neoliberal individualism.
