Zondag 27 oktober: Grenzeloos gesprek: Feminisme voor de 99%

Vorige maand verscheen de Nederlandse vertaling van Feminisme voor de 99%. Voor Grenzeloos reden om op de eerste bijeenkomst in een serie ‘Grenzeloos gesprekken’ op 27 oktober dit manifest centraal te stellen. Het manifest Feminisme voor de 99% is inmiddels in meer dan 20 talen vertaald. Het verwerpt het liberale feminisme van de 1%, dat gericht is op doorbreken van het glazen plafond voor een beperkte groep (voornamelijk witte hetero) vrouwen en pleit voor een feminisme dat aan de kant van de meerderheid van de vrouwen staat: arbeidsters, emigrantes, lesbiennes en transvrouwen.

MAY 18: COLONIAL LEGACIES TODAY: INDONESIA AND THE NETHERLANDS

On May 18, the IIRE will host an event organized by Histori Bersama: This seminar will bring together two themes. One is colonialism in the Netherlands Indies as a form of racism, leaving ideological and mental legacies in the Netherlands and how those legacies can be identified, critiqued and overcome. The second is a critique of colonial policies and their impact on conditions in Indonesia until today. How are labor, agrarian, human rights and women's movements working to overcome those conditions? How can international collaboration on these issues be advanced?

James D. Cockcroft (26 October, 1935 - 16 April, 2019)

We were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of our friend James Donald Cockcroft on 16 April, 2019. James was a fellow of the IIRE, a scholar, activist, and author of many books, especially on Latin American politics. He lived his life to the fullest, writing and engaged in activism until his illness prevented him from continuing. We wish his loved ones, especially his partner and former IIRE co-director, Susan Caldwell strenght in dealing with this loss.

May 9: Feminism for the 99% - A Manifesto, with Tithi Bhattacharya

On May 9, the IIRE is hosting a discussion around ‘Feminism for the 99 %. A manifesto’ with three speakers:

Tithi Bhattacharya is one of the authors of the manifesto. Inspired by the new wave of feminist activism worldwide, Tithi and her co-authors Cinzia Arruzza and Nancy Fraser argue that feminism should not start – or stop – with the drive to have women represented at the top of their professions. Rather, feminism must focus on those at the bottom, and fight for the world they deserve.
