About this session
And who has the power | privilege | access to make that choice?
This year’s International Womxn’s Day theme is #ChoosetoChallenge. What things do we, as womxn creatives, have the right to challenge? the duty to challenge? the ability to challenge? What is the assumed privilege inherent in being able to choose to challenge anything?
This conversation brings together a group of womxn who are running intersectional feminist brands - to have a real conversation about being a womxn-identified creative|designer, moving forward with intersectional change, and negotiating the power and privilege to challenge status quo.
