The issues of feminism and equality are becoming more and more prominent in society, and discourses around the recognition of FLINTA* people as equal members of society are increasingly being put into practice. Often, however, the perspectives of FLINTA* people who have experienced racism, particularly Black FLINTA*, are skipped over or pushed to the margins of discourses around equality. This happens even though Black feminist movements have always been and continue to be part of feminism and the struggle for equality. This workshop will provide a basic introduction to Black feminism. It will interactively highlight the origins, different goals and actors of Black feminist movements, stimulate discussion and promote participants’ own reflection on and redefinitions of feminism.
- Origins of Black feminism
- Global currents of Black feminism
- Relevant actors in Black feminism in the global north and south
- No previous knowledge of Black feminism is required
- Come with a willingness to engage with critical approaches to feminism
- The organisers know it is not a safe space, but request basic sensitivity to racism, sexism, classism, ableism, and other dimensions of discrimination
