Episode 7: Alliances

Feminism is not a single front. There is a universe of feminisms (liberal, neoliberal, transfeminist, transexcluding, intersectional, decolonial, and many others), which meet, intertwine and yes, sometimes even clash. We close this first season of the Humvn Podcast with a discussion on this theme: the alliances – possible and impossible – between today’s feminist movements.

Let’s try to understand if and how different feminisms can work towards a common political goal without canceling one story, and where instead it is important to draw a border with what we feel no longer represents us and move towards new horizons of struggle.
