Does it? Come find out!

Feminism isn't just one movement - it's lots of movements! There's a huge variety of theory, politics, and activism in feminism. But what do they all mean? What are those three waves about? What's the difference between radical feminism and intersectional feminism? What does "leaning in" actually mean? What the heck is cyborg feminism and why do some feminists spell things weird?

We'll be hosting a few short talks on different aspects of feminism, plus a knowledge share with the group. Come find out everything you wanted to know about feminism but were too afraid to ask!

We're delighted to have joining us:

Caroline West, a PhD researcher looking at the discourse between feminism and porn. She'll be speaking about the 2nd wave 'sex wars' and the repercussions of that up to the current day.

Shawna Scott of Sex Siopa, who'll be talking about the pros and cons of "Lean in" feminism.

Wendy Lyon, a solicitor specialising in human rights who will be talking about the legal roots of intersectionality.

Update: Maria unfortunately can't attend due to unforeseen circumstances. Maria Boyle, aka Twisteddoodles, cartoonist and illustrator, will speak about her personal route into feminism.

Aoife Martin is a trans woman and outspoken advocate for trans rights, and she'll be speaking about the intersectionality of Irish feminism and the acceptance of trans voices within that sphere.

Watch this space for more fantastic speakers as we announce them!
