With Sarah Banet-Weiser and Sara R. Farris
Once an insurgent movement against patriarchy, feminism now finds itself occupying a far more complex position in the world. Powerful institutions, major corporations and almost all political parties – even the nationalist, xenophobic right – routinely pay lip-service to the goal of sexual equality. What are we to make of all this, and what remains to be done in the pursuit of women’s liberation? We’ll discuss these questions and more with Sarah Banet-Weiser, author of Empowered: Popular Feminism and Popular Misogyny, and Sara Farris, author of In the Name of Women’s Rights: The Rise of Femonationalism.
