Poetry

This panel will explore the notion of feminism nowadays and will approach current efforts to advocate for feminist theory and women rights from an interdisciplinary perspective, dealing with vibrant issues such as the role education plays in shaping a more equal society; gender, gender roles and stereotypes; the voices of women poets, their vision and ideals; and finally casting light on global activism and social movements by examining the International Women´ Strike March 8.

Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Bring your poems of peace, social justice and resistance to our annual Left Forum open mic! The Radical Poets Collective is a group of poets who are also activists and dissidents across a range of movements for social change, from immigration to Israel-Palestine, Syria, climate change, Marxism, the Black Lives movement and more. Poetry, as an expression of the radical imagination, challenges society, empowers us in speaking truth to power, and inspires us to action, bringing hope to those who are hopeless and self-empowerment to those who have felt helpless. Come to learn more about us and what we do, and then read your poems along with us as we read ours.
