Shaista Aziz on Intersectional Feminism – Saving Europe From Itself

Episode 31,   Aug 19, 2019, 12:53 PM

Saving Europe From Itself is a new series from the Another Europe team. Each episode we’ll take one big idea, from one big thinker – and put it through its paces. In this show campaigner and broadcast journalist, Shaista Aziz argues that Europe needs to get serious about intersectional feminism. A former aid worker, who once described the culture in the sector as "patriarchy on speed", she picks apart how the idea of feminism has been used in international development and foreign policy across Europe. A different way of thinking about the agency of women and people of colour is urgently needed. 

The European Cultural Foundation supports this initiative as it is rethinking Europe as an open and democratic space.
