Description

Feminist Dissent is a new academic journal. It brings together activists, academics and writers to interrogate the multiple connections between religious fundamentalism and gender. It will open up new ways of thinking about secularism, religious freedom, civil liberties and human rights, nationalism and identity politics, anti-racism and multiculturalism, neo-liberalism, feminist theory and feminist resistance.

At our first event, members of the editorial collective will present the thinking behind the new journal.

– Why feminist dissent? (Rashmi Varma)
– Why universal human rights? (Alison Assiter)
– Why fundamentalism? (Gita Sahgal)

Presentations will be followed by questions, comments and discussion.
