Feminist popular education (JASS working paper)

By: 
Valerie Miller & Lisa VeneKlasen

Developing a critical political consciousness is at the core of JASS’ feminist movement building strategies. Popular education, or more specifically, feminist popular education, has long served as a conceptual and methodological foundation for JASS’ activist training, learning, organizing, and action. Perhaps one of the most defining characteristics of JASS’ approach, reinforced by our framework for understand and engaging power,feminist popular education provides a road map and tools for going beyond tactics to prioritize approaches and strategies that change hearts and minds, and thereby transform the norms and beliefs that disempower women and perpetuate inequality and violence.
