Event description

Description

Lucy Jackson, Department of Geography and Planning, University of Liverpool

The role of feminism and feminist discourses in our everyday lives has been both something to celebrate but has also been problematic. Whilst there has been a backlash against modern day feminism and what it represents, gendered ideals and practices are present in everyday life. Drawing on recent discussions in feminist geography, this discussion looks at the role of gender in politics- including recent political campaigns and more mundane elements of gender, sexism and the role of patriarchy which includes online discussion forums and campaigns regarding women’s reproductive rights. In looking at the connection between these debates, this event explores the question of ‘gender trouble’ and the continued role that assumptions about how different genders behave continue to be a prominent feature in our everyday lives.
