Women & Power: An Online Course Talk with Ayisha Siddiqa, Cinzia Arruzza
This is part of advaya’s course Women & Power: Reclaiming & Reimagining Power in the World Today.
Women’s collectives and movements play an essential role in enabling women to exercise power, support each other and transform society. What can we learn from historical and present day women’s movements? How do we build powerful collectives, keeping in mind the importance and difficulty of intersectionality? Considering the imbalances of power among women geographically and historically and the consequent tensions, how can we overcome them to build global solidarities and interconnected women’s movements?
