In the last five years feminist struggles across the world have exploded into mass movements and tidal waves of militancy. Women’s struggles against extractivism, far right governments, gendered violence and for reproductive justice and a renewed focus on the unpaid work of caring, cooking and cleaning that keeps capitalism and our communities alive has brought millions to the streets. At the heart of this new feminist movement is a rethinking of the categories of woman, work and nature. This session will explore the ecological crisis through a feminist lens and discuss how we must urgently dismantle economic and political systems that sees women and nature as resources to plunder, exploit and harm.
All events will take place on Zoom and we will email through the relevant links beforehand when you register. You can get help installing zoom here.
