The feminism of the left needs to be a feminism for the many. But the feminist movement, in recent years in particular, has been beset by diverging opinions about the commitments that feminism should entail. This raises the question: how should we understand the task of putting feminist principles into practice? How can we navigate feminist disagreement whilst retaining a resilient commitment to a feminism truly for the many? In this interactive session we will explore together what a method for feminist practice might look like--and how such a method might be employed at sites of feminist disagreement to strengthen and unite the feminist movement.
