Lisa Factora-Borchers: How to Stay in Your Lane While Still Being Intersectional: Feminism, Race, Power, & Pop Culture

 
Date:
Monday, March 5, 2018
 
Time:
7:00 p.m.
 
Description:
The U.S feminist movements has been described as waves even though the buzzword “intersectional” has to do with being at the converging point of multiple lanes. This talk takes on the ways we have learned about the “waves” of feminism and how that has brought us to the mandate of intersectionality. What have been the limitations of intersectionality? Where has it helped us? This talk looks at specific cases of feminism’s entrance into mainstream media and how the continued rise of marketplace feminism and white feminism illustrates we still have a long way to go before the waves can recede.
