White women are encouraged to take their whiteness for granted. This session will ask what it means personally and politically to critically reflect on and think about ourselves as white women.
Developed by feminists in the 1970's Women's Liberation Movement, CR is the way many women have worked from the truth of our own lives and experiences to political theory and collective action. 'The personal is political' sums this up and proved a radical challenge to mainstream political movements who began with (and often went no further than) the writings of male theorists. Dynamic and based on the value of each woman's experience and the importance of recognising our different perspectives as well as the things we all share, it has been known to change lives and build movements.
This year FiLiA is running several workshops for women only. Maximum 10 places.
