Transnational Feminism and (Im)Possible Solidarities

In recent discussions on gender justice, there has been increasing focus on transnational feminist networks as facilitating ‘solidarity across borders’. In the face of growing global interdependence, the hope is that a transnational citizen’s movement could potentially galvanise global cooperation in overcoming gender violence and promoting gender equality.

In my talk, I will argue that while new modes of collective agency can emerge by drawing on gendered vulnerability as a site of political agency, ‘global sisterhood’ can inadvertently also function as a tactic of neoliberal governmentality. My talk will critically engage with the promises and limits of global gender justice from a postcolonial perspective.

"Tashweesh" is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Arts and Culture, Civil Service and Sport.
