White Feminism - All About Women 2021
Talks & Ideas • 1h 7m
How does consumerist liberal feminism leave women behind?
With Koa Beck.
Presented at All About Women, 7 March 2021, 1pm AEST
White feminism is an ideology that seeks individual power over community wellbeing. Join author Koa Beck for a look at the racism embedded in much of the movement's history, and learn how we can all make feminism truly inclusive.
Modern-day feminism appears harmless, commodified, and obsessed with individual success. Women's empowerment looks like receiving male privileges, which repeats patterns of patriarchy, capitalism and greed.
Koa Beck, former editor of Jezebel and author of White Feminism, explores gender and race in history to reveal how the fight for equality has shut out Indigenous and transgender women as well as women of colour.
Join Koa to explore how white feminism maintains white supremacy, classism and transphobia - and how we can push back. This will be a radical, rousing call to enter a new era of the movement.
Please note, Koa Beck will be appearing via video link.
First broadcast Sunday March 7 2021.
Duration: approx 60 minutes.
Rental period: 30 days
