Practicing Intersectional Feminism: A Discussion

  • 4014 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Philadelphia Intersectional Feminist Group will be discussing the article below, by Jarune Uwujaren and Jamie Utt, on practicing intersectional feminism. It's only a couple pages, so please read it before the event! The article proposes three ways of practicing intersectional feminism in our activism and our own lives: (1) self-reflect, (2) decenter your perspective, and (3) be willing to make mistakes. We'll discuss these principles together and break up into smaller groups.
