Hub Talks: Can We All Be Feminists?
Why is it difficult for so many women to fully identify with the word “feminist”?
How do our personal histories and identities affect our relationship to feminism?
Why is intersectionality so important?
Can a feminist movement that doesn’t take other identities like race, religion, or socioeconomic class into account even be considered feminism?
How can we make feminism more inclusive?
Join us for an evening exploring some of these questions and more from Can We All Be Feminists?
Can We All Be Feminists? features seventeen established and emerging writers from diverse backgrounds wrestling with these questions, exploring what feminism means to them in the context of their other identities-from a hijab-wearing Muslim to a disability rights activist to a body-positive performance artist to a transgender journalist.
Edited by the brilliant, galvanising, and dazzlingly precocious nineteen-year-old feminist activist and writer June Eric-Udorie, this impassioned, thought-provoking collection showcases the marginalised women whose voices are so often drowned out and offers a vision for a new, comprehensive feminism that is truly for all.
Our guest writers include Birmingham based Selina Thompson, Eishar Kaur and Wei Ming Kam.
Tickets are free for Impact Hub Birmingham members and £5 for non members. Tickets can be booked here. Copies of Can We All Be Feminists? will be on sale and our guest writers will be happy to sign books at the end of the event.
