Tue 4 July, 7-9pm
SPACE Mare Street
Free & all welcome
Led by Alexandra Kokoli
In a deeply ambivalent celebration of Independence Day, this 4th July revisits the writing of Andrea Dworkin, American research-led polemicist and radical feminist activist. Together we read the first chapter of Dworkin’s book Right-Wing Women (New York: Perigree, 1983), ‘The Promise of the Ultra-Right’ (pp. 13-35), and discuss its historical and current implications and insights in the context of the recent resurgence and mainstreaming of the ultra right.
Although Dworkin’s work is well-known within Anglophone feminist circles, and her ideas on sexual violence and pornography have been hotly debated and contested, relatively little attention has been paid to her analysis of right-wing women.
This session is led by feminist art historian Alexandra Kokoli.
Right-Wing Women is widely available in paperback and can also be freely accessed online
