Feminist Realities: Transforming democracy in times of crisis

Jun 09, 12:00 PM
An inspiring global panel of feminist thinkers and activists discuss how we can collectively reorganise, shift power and pivot towards building transformative feminist realities that can get us out of the worsening health, climate and capitalist crises.

This webinar  explores feminist analyses of the crisis and the way the pandemic intersects with patriarchy, corporate power and a global division of labour that is both gendered and racialised. What can we learn from the feminist practices and measures that are already being deployed to build radical democratic systems that genuinely care for the environment and our collective well-being?

-Tithi Bhattacharya: Associate Professor of History and the Director of Global Studies at Purdue University

-Laura Roth, Lecturer of legal and political philosophy at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Barcelona and member of Minim Municipalist Observatory

-Awino Okech, Lecturer at the Centre for Gender Studies at School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London
