Live Virtual Talk Aug. 15th: Sahrawi Feminism

Womanhood & International Relations podcast is beginning a new series of free live & virtual conversations with incredible women from all around the world to explore intersectionality, decolonization and human rights defense and protection.

In this first event “Sahrawi Feminism”, we will hear from activists Alia Malainine and Mena Souilem, founders of “Towards a feminist consciousness” intersectional blog on creating an alternative feminist knowledge of women’s issues and gender identities in the MENA region.

Together we will explore:

– How women are affected by feminism and how/when did the Sahrawi feminist movement start
– What’s the situation of Sahrawi women in refugee camps and in the colonized territories during the Moroccan invasion, the war and as refugees
-What are the obstacles and hardships our guest speakers face as Sahrawi feminists
-Q&A Session

This special episode is co-produced and will be co-moderated by Mexican researcher and activist Chelo Torija. Torija is an International Relations major and member of Colectiva Tiamat Ku’vi. Her research work is focused on gender and regional studies in Africa and Asia.
