What is Transnational Feminist Solidarity Today? A dialogue with and of Iranian feminists

Date: Monday, 17 October 2022

Time: 17:00-18:00 (BST)

Location: Online (Zoom)

This roundtable discussion responds to the recent uprisings taking place in Iran, asking how we can engage in meaningful forms of solidarity through transnational, feminist, and queer movements and perspectives. The roundtable will engage with the following themes: building internationalist and transnational solidarity; current and historical forms of feminist and women's activism and organising inside and outside of Iran; and lessons and challenges from transnational, feminist and anti-imperialist movements and theory.
