Feminist solidarities in times of crises

This event will be in Zoom

The last few years have heralded not just a series of perhaps previously unimaginable international crises but also crises which have a particular impact on women and/or minorities or have particular gender related facets and implications. 

The event will comprise two parts: the first will be two roundtables to highlight some of the ways in which the recent crises require the mobilisation of gendered narratives and result in particular gendered implications. The second part of the event is a discussion about ways in which we can build practical mechanisms for maintaining feminist solidarity in these troubled times.
