What is Intersectional Sexism and how does it apply to our lives, how we relate to one another and the future?
Different from her 2008 Primary campaign, Hilliary Clinton's campaign for President in 2016 served as a referendum on our collective understanding of what it means to be a feminist. After attending an event last Winter entitled, "Taking Back Feminism," our facilitator, Samantha Porter, was prompted to examine this statement. From whom/what is feminism being "taken back?" Who of "us" is doing the taking? These early questions served as the starting point for a much deeper inquiry. They became the lens through which she started to question our collective understanding of feminism and where it intersects with our many identities. She hopes to continue this conversation by facilitating a thoughtful discussion focused on intersectional feminism.
