Gender & Democracy in the Neoliberal Agenda. Silvia Federici

 

6th Subversive festival 13/05/2013, cinema Europa

As feminism has been institutionalized and subsumed to the neo-liberal agenda in the name of democratization, a feminist critique of liberal democracy is more urgent than ever. Silvia Federici discusses the role this grand illusion has played in feminist politics and contrasts it with the contribution feminist movements have made to democracy intended as self-government and egalitarian division of the commonwealth.
