What about us? Intersecting inequalities around gender and religion or belief

23 January 2020 13:00–14:30

Room 221, Institute of Development Studies Institute of Development Studies
Library Road,
University of Sussex
Falmer BN1 9RE

The theory of intersectionality asserts that people are often disadvantaged by multiple sources of identifiers operating in relation to one another: ethnicity, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and/or disability.

What are the experiences of women who are considered the religious other”? What relations of power influence their positions within their religious communities, broader society and politics? Why have they been ignored by feminists and development actors?

Speakers are feminist activists from across the world and include:

  • Mariz Tadros (Chair), CREID and IDS
  • Heman Ramze, Iraq
  • Fatima Suleiman, Nigeria
  • Naumana Suleman, Pakistan

Please note all speakers could be named for reasons of personal safety.
