Finding Feminism: Millennial Activists and the Unfinished Gender Revolution

Description

A book talk with the Finding Feminism author, Alison Dahl Crossley.

How are new generations of feminists reinvigorating the movement? How has feminism persisted and changed in the last generation? How may feminists shape our future? In this talk, Alison Dahl Crossley will share insights from her new book Finding Feminism: Millennial Activists and the Unfinished Gender Revolution. A social movement scholar with expertise in feminism, Crossley has spent more than a decade studying the feminist movement and working with young feminists.

By analyzing participants’ intersectional feminist identities as well as the organizational strategies and structures of their feminist organiza­tions, Crossley demonstrates how college students continue to be feminists and activists, despite speculation to the con­trary, and how the meanings and tactics of feminism have changed over time. Finding Feminism contributes to broader conversations about the transformation and current state of the feminist movement, and the way students are negotiating the strain borne by progress and stall.

The event is free and open to the Stanford community. Click here to RSVP.
