A round table discussion about ‘Building Feminist Futures: Covid Climate Change and Capitialism’

About this event

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the impacts of climate change are ravaging the lives of many, both highlighting and deepening inequalities across the globe. We believe that all these problems are rooted in Capitalism as a system of harm that creates and thrives on these inequalities on the bases of gender, race, and class. But change is possible; and feminism gives us a lens through which to imagine a better, kinder, and more equitable future for us all. So, together, let us ask: what kind of world do we want to live in? And what can we do collectively to get there? Let us use these crises as an opportunity to radically change the order of things, to challenge the Capitalist power structures that try to oppress us and suppress our voices. Let us take action in our own communities and beyond to build a future that belongs to all of us.
