About Feminist Reading Group: Conversations on Ecofeminism

Sun 19 May 2024, 11am – 1pm | FREE, booking essential | Ages 16+

Embark on a journey into the intersection of ecology and feminism with Ecofeminism. Coined by feminist thinkers such as Françoise d’Eaubonne and Vandana Shiva, this term highlights the exploitation of both women and nature, often arguing that both are rooted in similar systems of power and control. This event offers a space to unravel the complexities of ecological and feminist issues, exploring their intersections and contemplating their impact.
