White Feminism with Koa Beck & Julia Serano

THURSDAY JAN 28, 2021 5:00 PM PST

Even amidst calls for inclusivity, contemporary feminist discourse tends to prioritize issues historically attributed to white, cis-het women: individual needs, specific reproductive rights, and white collar professionalism. Koa Beck, author of the new book White Feminism: From the Suffragettes to Influencers and Who They Leave Behind, joins author and activist Julia Serano in conversation around the shortcomings of mainstream feminism and the potential of solidarity.

Get Koa Beck's book White Feminism from the Hammer Store online.
