In 2017 the words ‘feminism’ and ‘complicity’ were both chosen as the ‘words of the year’ by respectively Merriam-Webster Dictionary and Dictionary.com

In this roundtable, three feminists and academics discuss the relation between the two terms.

They will reflect on how some forms of feminism have been complicit with perpetuating injustices and inequalities, for example by colluding with neoliberalism, racism and trans exclusion. Each of the speakers will draw on their respective research projects on women and austerity, sex workers, and NGOs to challenge feminist practices and ask if we are doing enough to build solidarities across movements.

They will also discuss questions of the co-optation and instrumentalisation of feminisms, majority women’s investments and interests as well as strategies to refuse and resist complicity.

Tickets available through Billetto. £3 entry redeemable against any purchase on the evening.
