BEAUTY AS RESISTANCE
Rebecca Walker coined the term Third Wave Feminism in 1992. It was a call to action, a response to an evolving movement, and an influential introduction to the idea of intersectionality. She is a provocative thinker and writer on motherhood, gender and race. Now, she turns her incisive mind to beauty. How can we rethink the cultural concept and its associated notions of power and control? How can we expand beauty’s definition to liberate ourselves from white, patriarchal norms? Join this author, activist and one of the most influential leaders of her generation for an illuminating discussion about the relationship between beauty and resistance.
SUFFRAGETTES TO SOCIAL MEDIA: WAVES OF FEMINISM
Panel | Barbara Caine, Nakkiah Lui, Anne Summers, and Rebecca Walker
While it’s hard to put a starting date on a complex social movement, modern western feminism has been around for about a hundred years. To celebrate, we are taking stock of what we’ve achieved, and looking at what’s left to fight for. We're welcomed in the workplace, but women's work is often undervalued and underpaid. We have a measure of reproductive freedom but are still frighteningly vulnerable to sexual violence. Each wave of feminism has faced extraordinary challenges. This panel will be a meeting of the generations as we look to an optimistic future. No feminist, aspiring or jaded, can afford to miss it.
