Les grandes remplaçantes ? Solidarité. Intersectionnalité. Radicalité.
One movement stands out in the Belgian feminist landscape, an increasingly diverse landscape in terms of cultural heritage, vision, demands and mobilisation, because of the way it offers an alternative and inclusive discourse: intersectional feminism.
Intersectional feminism takes into account the different ways in which some women (cis- or transgender), but not only they, find themselves at the crossroads of multiple oppressive mechanisms such as racism, misogyny, vandalism, transphobia... This movement is carried by non-white, women of colour. It faces strong opposition from certain historical and institutional feminist currents, carried by white women, whose discourse does not take this intersectionality into account and therefore constitutes a new form of oppression..
During this evening programme, several Belgian persons and collectives with an intersectional and feminist vision will take the floor. They will talk about their discourse, about the new terminology that makes it possible to focus on marginalised living conditions and about the resistance they experience from other feminist movements – mainly from white feminists.
On the programme:
- Panel debate with Fenya Fischler from the Jewish Queer Collective Shabbes 24/7, Collectif ReSisters (Rabia Uslu) and Imazi.Reine (Fatima-Zohra Ait El Maâti).
- Excerpt from the new documentary LGR? Solidarité. Intersectionnalité. Radicalité where filmmaker Sakina M. Ghani will participate.
- Closing performance by slam artist Gloria Mukolo.
