LIFTA x CPS presents 'Palestinian Feminist Discourses: Contemporary Views and Emerging Movements’, a live panel as part of the program 'Palestine, IN-BETWEEN'. Joining us from Gaza, Haifa, and Ramallah, the panel introduces new feminist movements that are gaining momentum across historic Palestine.
It's a discussion highlighting shared desires and the varying approaches to organizing and mobilizing based on locality and the different faces of Israeli oppression. Topics will include contemporary political feminist movements, queer feminist activism, and feminism as a human rights issue. It addresses how these new movements have been inspired by or, on the contrary, depart from past Palestinian feminist movements.
Speakers include Tala'at member Riya Al’Sanah, Al-Shabaka senior analyst Yara Hawari, the Center for Women's Legal Researches and Consulting in Gaza project coordinator Nour Swirki, and Aswat co-founder Ghadir al Shafie. The discussion will be moderated by Aamer Ibraheem, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Columbia University.
