Join us in kicking off 2021 with our very own consciousness raising groups. We will meet online in small groups of 6-8 people on a fortnightly basis and discuss questions such as care, sexuality, power, work, community, resistance.Consciousness raising groups – groups of feminists who met up regularly to discuss their lives – were the backbone of the women’s liberation movement in the 1970s.
A space to examine our own lives, take hold of our experiences, politicise them, and recognise that problems that are personal are also systemic. There’s a lot that we need to learn which can only come from collective and sustained reflection of our own lives and experiences.
This new project comes from a desire to change the way we’re thinking about the world and creating change – to start from our experience and emotional states, to make these a key part of and starting place for our radical strategies, and to have that inform our actions. The best way to understand how these subjects both makes our worlds and traps us in space, is to think about them together.
Questions for the first session includes:
– What does care mean for you right now?
– Who cares for you? Who do you care for?
– Is care different for you this year compared to last?
– What is keeping you from getting the care that you imagine you need?
Feminists of all genders welcome! Send us a message if you have any questions or concerns. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
