The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities in collaboration with British Comparative Literature Association, Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality (BiGS), the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research, and Mapping Maternal Subjectivities, Identities and Ethics (MaMSIE) presents:

Feminist Emergency – International Conference

Panel 2:

Women and Power? Feminism and shifting gender patterns in neoliberal times

This panel will consider how feminists can best address issues of power and women’s agency, particularly given that some women now occupy the very pinnacle of power whilst so many others remain ever more impoverished and exploited. Thus, alongside the growth of ‘corporate feminism’ and the sexism and misogyny still confronting women in power, it is clear that class, race and ethnic divisions between women continue to deepen.
Panellists:
