Theme: Intersectionality of Feminism

This event occurred on
September 27, 2022
Kathmandu, Bagmati

As Bell Hooks once said, while raising the subject of racial prejudices as a component shaping feminist thought, it is important to recognize that there is some initial resistance to the idea that much of what upper class women identify as authentic to female experience may be erroneous.

In this event, we will be bringing together marginalized female voices, where they share a stage and talk about their female experience.
