The Legacies of Feminism in Germany and India: A Roundtable Discussion
Online event, 19 Mar. 2021, 1 p.m. GMT / 2 p.m. CET / 6:30 p.m. IST
What does feminism mean in different political, social, and historical contexts? How has women’s activism in the past shaped how we think about feminism and women’s rights today? And what does this mean for women’s rights in the current political climate, when right-wing movements and authoritarian tendencies are on the rise? This roundtable will bring together scholars from India, Germany, and the UK to explore the legacies and meanings of feminism in the contemporary world. In particular, the panel will examine how feminist activism has intersected with other rights-based movements and issues, including decolonization, race and ethnicity, labour, and LGBTQ.
