Feminism and Revolution
The revolution will be feminist. With Bochra Triki and Eva van Redecker.
In a time of global crises, feminist strategies seem increasingly indispensable for a new understanding of revolution. Two experts explore the complex relationship between revolution and feminism in contemporary theory, art and culture. Which strategies can we forge from the intersectional, connective, sustainable teachings of feminism(s) in order to radically change socially violent and hierarchical orders?
