Ten perspectives on contemporary feminism
Franza Drechsel and Caroline Kim (Editors)
What exactly is feminism? Ultimately, there might be as many different feminisms as there feminists. Yet feminism, at its core, enables a solidary relation to one another and a proximity between struggles, which, at first glance, may seem quite distant from each other indeed.
In light of this fact, we asked womxn from different contexts to tell us what feminism means to them. Why do they call themselves feminists—or why not? What are their specific struggles? Where do feminists part ways and where do they converge? This publication collects their perspectives, which were initially brought together in a workshop called “Feminist Encounters” at the Feminist Futures Festival in autumn 2019 in Essen, Germany.
