Capitalism & Violence against women: The New Resistance

Women around the world are leading new campaigns against misogynist violence and harassment and the promotion of sexism by conservative governments and right-wing populist forces. This forum will look at these inspiring movements and the central place of women’s liberation in the struggle against capitalism.

We acknowledge this event takes place on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation and acknowledge their sovereignty and pay respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
