Go Feminist! – Conference 2012 | Saturday 4th of February
25 Red Lion Square
10.00am – 5.30pm
Showcasing some of the more marginalised voices within the feminist movement, Go Feminist attempts to make connections between debates within feminist activism and highlight the intersections of oppression. We aim to engage in wider discussions and approaches to make equality a reality.
The feminist story belongs to all women everywhere and Go Feminist hopes to broaden existing theory to include oppressions beyond patriarchy. We will be focusing on the most forgotten, vulnerable and marginalised, linking movements and sharing our commitment to ending injustice.
