This is Part 2 of our 2-part show with Tanya Serisier about #metoo, feminism and the struggle against gendered and sexual violence. This show fleshes out the problems of the notion of consent as a solution to gendered and sexual violence, the continuing importance of the lessons of 70s feminism, including much-maligned lesbian separatism, how feminism has forced a rethink of what politics and power is and we finish with Tanya’s reflections on the recent UCU strike and what it shows us about radical and collective struggles.
Some stuff we mention includes:
Wendy Brown Moralism as Anti-politics
Tanya Serisier Is Consent Sexy
Judith Butler Sexual Consent: Some Thoughts on Psychoanalysis and Law
Nancy Fraser Feminism, Capitalism And The Cunning Of History
