15th May 2017 6pm
Lecture Theatre at CCW Foundation Centre,
1 Wilson Road
At a time when the word “feminist” appears everywhere from Dior fashion shows to Theresa May’s t-shirt, it’s easy to forget the radical goals of the women’s movement – and the vast inequality that still exists in society. What are some of the biggest battles and challenges facing feminism in 2017? What does intersectionality mean in practice? Why do so many women still feel excluded from mainstream feminism? And what policies would women like to see on the agenda in the lead-up to the general election? Speakers include: Kelsey M – activist with Sisters Uncut Liv Wynter – artist involved in the Whereisanamendieta campaign, promoting the representation of women, non-binary people and people of colour in the arts Annabel Sowemimo – junior doctor and reproductive justice campaigner Laur Mar – SWARM collective (formerly known as Sex Workers’ Open University)
