Brass Tacks: On Feminism and Misogyny

With Kimberly Simmons, affiliated scholar with the USM Women and Gender Studies Program

The project of white supremacy is deeply intertwined and at times is no different than the project of patriarchy. It is our responsibility to pull back the misogynistic interpretation of feminism that would have us ignore it, make fun of it, or push it aside as “not for me”. What is feminism? What is misogyny? And what is the value to each of us of reclaiming a useful sense of these terms?
