How to reconnect feminist and anticapitalist critique?
Husanović's critique of gender mainstreaming suggests ways to resist the neoliberal appropriation of feminist politics by embracing new theories of social emancipation without sacrificing the struggle for recognition. In her words, it is important to reconnect feminism with the critique of capitalism, because a large part of feminism abandoned class-based analysis, embraced culturalization, and bridled our dreams about feminist emancipation for the benefit of capitalist accumulation. Through identity politics, it dispersed the feminist idea of equality, and began to advertise different fashion styles and lifestyles, all of which have decentralised our labour power.
The lecture will be followed by a workshop, where we will exchange our knowledge, experience, and try to find possible actions to take in the field of feminist politics.
