About the lecture

Unaffordable housing, poverty wages, healthcare, climate change, border policing; not the issues you ordinarily hear feminists talking about. But don’t these issues impact the vast majority of women globally? This lecture will explore how feminism shouldn’t start—or stop—with seeing women represented at the top of society. It must start with those at the bottom, and fight for the world they deserve. And that means targeting capitalism. Feminism must be anti-capitalist, eco-socialist and anti-racist.

Free and open to the public

This event is sponsored by the Marquette University Department of Social and Cultural Sciences, the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities, and the Association of Marquette University Women.
