"Against White Feminism" Book Symposium - Thursday at 5:00 EST

The ClassCrits community is hosting a book symposium event on Thursday, February 24th at 5:00 p.m. EST featuring Against White Feminism.  Here is a link to register and a summary of the program:

This discussion explores Rafia Zakaria's new book Against White Feminism, which serves as a counter-manifesto to white feminism's alignment with colonial, patriarchal, and white supremacist ideals to center women of color. The panel participants will consider the legacy of the British feminist imperialist savior complex and what Zakaria describes as "the colonial thesis that all reform comes from the West" to the condescension of the white feminist-led "aid industrial complex" and the conflation of sexual liberation as the "sum total of empowerment." The discussion will build on the work of intersectional feminists, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Adrienne Rich, and Audre Lorde.
