Jacinta Muteshi on Sisterhood Revisited: Local, Transcontinental & Global Feminist Struggles
Mar 8, 2012, 4:30pm-6:30pm
Women’s movements and women’s rights advocates have a long history of engagement and organizing as local and transnational groups. This activism is informed by both the interconnectedness and the diversity of their visions, experiences and struggles.
This keynote will focus on the immense complexities and contradictions for democracy and feminist politics within institutions of governance. Governance has become a key arena of feminist contestationary activity, because it controls and limits feminist visions, while simultaneously carving out spaces for selected local, transcontinental and global feminist organizations and politics in the struggle for women’s inclusion in democratic governance.
Jacinta Muteshi is a Kenyan scholar, adviser and consultant in the field of women's rights and gender equality with more than 20 years working in diverse international, national and regional projects. She was educated at the State University of New York, McGill University and University of Toronto where she obtained her PhD.
All are welcome to attend. The lecture will be followed by light refreshments.
