Feminist Reading Group 2: Social Capital and Hierarchy


Feminist Reading Group will meet on Saturday morning, 30th January 2016 at 11am, in AWAM (No. 85, Jalan 21/1, Taman SEA, Petaling Jaya). Our topic of discussion is on ‘Social Capital and Hierarchy’ within feminism and inequalities between women.

We will discuss Jo Freeman’s classic essay ‘Tyranny of structurelessness‘.

Some questions for us to ponder:

1) What is social and cultural capital? Is it different from privilege?
2) What happens when women have plenty of social capital?
3) Is non-hierarchy always a good thing?

Discussion is in Bahasa Malaysia and English.

The Feminist Reading Group is open to everybody, registration is not required and you can friends and family. If you use Twitter, please share the event.
