Beyond the West: Feminism in India and China description

If Western feminism stands accused of being preoccupied with white middle class concerns, what is life like for women in the world’s most populous nations?  Sohaila Abdulali (What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape) grew up in India and continues to write about and for her country of origin.  Leta Hong Fincher documents China’s nascent feminist movement in Betraying Big Brother and the threat it poses to the Communist Party’s patriarchal and authoritarian views.

Chair: Natasha Cica
