Elections are controversial among activists. Are they a path for people power? A way to mobilize the grassroots and advance our agendas? Or do they coopt our issues? Divert our energy? Are they a necessary evil or an essential part of our strategies?
At the heart of the uneasy relationship between movements and elections is the question: are elections a way we can contest for power and voice? Rarely do we get a chance to discuss this across borders, so for dialogue #5, we are bringing together eight women from different countries to share their insights and perspectives. Recorded September 22, 2020.
Women Radically Transforming a World in Crisis, dialogue series, was born in response to the need for new spaces for political conversation, community, and strategizing at a time of lockdown and isolation. It takes its inspiration from the bold feminist agenda created for the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women.
