Sun, Oct 24, 2021, 4:00 – 6:00 PM EDT
From 1970 to 1980, the Third World Women’s Alliance lived the dream of third world feminism. One of the earliest groups advocating for intersectional activism, they argued that women of color faced a “triple jeopardy” of race, gender, and class oppression. Widely recognized as the era’s primary voice for women of color, this alliance across ethnic and racial identities was unique then and now. Pat Romney will share the history of this group and its members and together we will explore what this history suggests for organizing today.
