"Women, intersectionality and the politics of gender equality todayAs celebrations for International Women’s Day 2016 come to an end, evoking struggles of the past, challenges of today and a renewed push for gender parity as women continue to lag behind men in economic participation and opportunity by 15 to 25 percent in even the most gender-equal societies; this Sunday Night Live session explores whether feminism needs an upgrade in an age where:
The phenomenon of ‘white feminism’ has led to criticisms that feminism should not be about gender alone;
Intersectionality has brought race, class and transgender issues to the forefront of feminist politics and debates;
There are increasing concerns that men are being left
behind in an age of technological disruption and economic decline, while
women are progressing because of the pursuit of gender equality.
