Feminism and Colonial Difference

Discussion

Today we have academic researcher Sara Salem who is based at the Institute of Social Studies in the Netherlands and Fatuma Khaireh who is a member of the OOMK collective In London. We chat about the histories of feminist movements, gender as a Eurocentric (mis)conception and the limits of intersectionality. Thanks to Sara for making time for us during her short stay in town and Fatuma for making it such a lively discussion!
