Radical Ecofeminist Lecture/Workshop
Tuesday, April 21, 2009 - 5:00pm to Tuesday, April 21, 2009 - 8:00pm

Last Spring, two womyn activists from the Portland Animal Defense League, Rising Tide North America and Cascadia Earth First! went on a westcoast feminist tour with an interactive and engaging presentation, with a stop at Portland State University, booked by campus activists. Because of the dialogue from this specific stop, we were asked to re-engage with the presentation, this time with the Women's Resource Center.

When: 
Tuesday, April 21st, 2009
Where:  PSU's Women's Resource Center on 10th & Montgomery
Time:  5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We are offering a two hour presentation on radical eco-feminism and environmental ethics. Eco-feminism is the social movement that regards the oppression of women and nature as interconnected. Radical ecofeminist theorists have extended their analysis to consider the interconnections between sexism, the domination of nature (including animals), and also racism and social inequalities. Consequently it is now better understood as a movement working against the interconnected oppressions of gender, race, class and nature.

This is a two part workshop which dives into recognizing the need for radical analysis over reformist thinking- working to drastically change the system rather than working within it. The workshop employs current feminist pedagogy-such as a mind map, and is dependent on audience participation.
